Project description

The evaluation of the Hessen Education Server  is aimed at the identification of problems as to the portal’s contents and its usability. In a further step, recommendations are to be given regarding an improvement of the existing services.

The study is based on mixed methods, these consist of:

  • an online survey;
  • a usability test;
  • a best-practice analysis.

While the online survey evaluates the contents in their broad scope, the usability test takes a closer look at details. Finally, a best-practice analysis compares different services offered by similar providers, and discloses successful concepts.

Funding

The Information Center Education evaluates the education server by the federal state of Hessen on behalf of the Amt fuer Lehrerbildung (teacher training council). The evaluation is conducted from October 2006 until the end of February 2007, completed by a final report.
