The first release of our Comment Cards application is now available.
Comment Cards is a program for evaluating games made in Adventure Author. A user will fill out the questions on a Comment Card in order to assess their game. Answers come in three forms:
- written answers
- giving a star rating - between 1 star (least) and 5 stars (most)
- supporting evidence - attaching a screenshot (or something else) which supports your written answer
Teachers can design their own Comment Cards, adding their own headings and questions, and choosing how they want the children to answer (from the list above). They can design a single Comment Card and use it to target multiple ability levels, by selectively showing and hiding particular questions depending on the audience.
Once a Comment Card has been filled in, pupils, teachers and anyone else can add their own comments to constructively discuss the answers given.
Comment Cards is designed to run on Windows operating systems.
IMPORTANT: In order to use Comment Cards, you must first install Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 or higher. If you are running Windows Vista, you already have this installed. If not, you can download it here. (It's free.)
(Note: the link above takes you to Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, rather than 3.0, since this is the latest version at the time of writing. Either version is fine.)
