Evaluating A Piece of Technology

What makes something good? What makes something great? What makes something bad? These are the questions you need to answer to be able to explain whether something is worth while doing or why something should be avoided. We evaluate things every day, but the key to giving an effective evaluation is to explain clearly the reasons that lead you to make this evaluation.

For this essay, your task is to evaluate something that you do or encounter on your weekend/“free time”:

Sample Topics: Do not writing any product of iPhone



World of Warcraft

Google Chrome

An Album/ Podcast

An Arcade / Sport

A game/video game

An Ap

A TV Program … or any activity you can think of


Your evaluation should either be positive or negative opinion about why I should/should not do this on my weekends.


In a time when the government is interested in watching everything its citizens do, the facial recognition software in Apple’s Pictures provides an ethical dilemma because it removes an individual’s right to anonymity.


Your essay must use the standard structure expected of any academic essay:

An Introduction with a thesis at the end
At least 4 Body paragraphs each with a clear focus and topic sentence
A concluding paragraph that wraps up your argument
Be 4-pgs or longer

You need to evaluate your subject using three or more separate criteria. A paragraph should be devoted to each criteria.


Restaurant: food, service, appearance, price

Movie: plot, acting, special effects, directing

You also need to include a counterargument that consists of two parts:

1. The opposing opinion (If your evaluation is negative, the counter argument would be positive.

2. Your response to the counterargument

Your essay will be evaluated on how well it meets the requirements of the assignment and on its use of specific details, clear organization, and grammatical accuracy.

I will use the following criteria to evaluate your evaluation essay:

Have you stated your judgment clearly in the thesis that follows a topic + comment structure?
Have you evaluated your subject using three or more separate and appropriate criteria or standards?
Does the “P” of PIE have your opinion on how the subject of the evaluation meets a criterion?
Does the “I” of PIE show how you backed up your evaluations with convincing reasons and support?
Have you included a counterargument consisting of two parts: the opposing idea (reader’s objection) and your response to it (your refutation of the objection)?
Have you described the subject for readers unfamiliar with it?
Have you organized your essay clearly–introduction, body, conclusion; transitions; topic sentences?
Are the sentences clear and correct (Remember: if an essay has six or more major errors per page, it cannot be awarded a passing score)?
If appropriate, have you used the MLA documentation system correctly and used sources only from either the De Anza College databases or approved outside sources.

I will score your final evaluation essay out of 150 points. There will not be a revision option or requirement after I have graded the essay.
