Evaluation criteria * 
(* If a digital learning aid meets the criteria in the given sub-area, it is assigned the maximum number of points shown in brackets! In case it meets the criteria only partially, the score is adequately reduced. If the evaluator is not able to assess objectively the applicability or inapplicability of any of the determined criteria, such criterion is skipped and the respective maximum number of points shown in the brackets will not be included in the overall score.)

2.a Content


  • Software content respects the fundamental pedagogical documents – national curriculum, educational programs, content and performance standards. (0-4 points)
  • Information processing by the software develops the key competences of a learner prescribed in the applicable and binding pedagogical documents and the information is presented in a logical structure (0-2 points)
  • Software content is completely localised into the particular mother tongue (national language). (0-6 points)
  • Software content provides the themes for educational projects, problem tasks and real-life examples. (0-2 points)
  •  Presented information can be used in an adjusted form in separate presentations. (0-2 points)
  • Texts are stylistically and professionally adjusted to the age of users in the target group and develop their communication skills. (0-2 points)
    (18 points)


  • Software content provides the knowledge, facts, and definitions which are professionally and objectively correct, obtained from trustworthy sources, and verified. (0–4 points)
  • Information provided by the software is up-to-date, accurate, in various graphic formats – tables, graphs, models, etc. (0–4 points)
  • Information texts are supplement by additional explanatory information and other information sources, in an appropriate manner. (0–2 points)
  • Software contains high-quality, varied, and updated picture material, considering the specific features of the given subject and the key competencies developed thereby. (0–6 points)
    (16 points)


  • Graphic processing of the information by the software facilitates good text readability. (0–2 points)

2.b Operation


  • Software operation is simple and intuitive. (0-2 points)
  • Graphical tools for the software operation are comprehensible, functionally adequate, and explicit. (0–2 points)
  • Software operation tools facilitate fast movement in the information database. (0–2 points)
  • Software enables users to monitor accurately their operations inside the software structure, repeat them, or it can remember a direct path to it (saves it in the memory). (0–2 points)
  • Software operation tools include the functions of fast search, return to the start, and step back. (0–2 points)
  • Software does not respond to a user’s steps related to the lack of attendance, accidental motion, or which are aimed at damaging its functionality. (0 – 2 points)
  • Software operation does not hinder the work with other program applications and the Internet search. (0–2 points)
  • (Software  focused on science branches focused on the Earth) Software enables a user to move over the interactive map, where the marked locations are interconnected with the corresponding information database. (0–2 points)


2.c Information structuring and processing


  • Software structure is well-organised, logical, and thoroughly thought-out. Orientation inside the structure is easy for users. (0–2 points)
