Pitch Feedback and Voting

Due: Tuesday, September 10th, 11:59PM
Update: Here are the results of the feedback and voting.

Assignment Overview

This assignment has three parts:
  1. Read through your assigned project pitches. We randomly selected which titles you were assigned . Each student must review two project pitches.
  2. Review your assigned project pitches using the Google Doc evaluation form that we created
  3. Read through as many other project pitches as you would like and then rank your top three favorites.

Please read the pitches carefully. Your votes matter. You will be working on one of the following projects throughout the rest of the semester.

1. Project Pitches

Matt and I pre-screened the following project pitches based on the same evaluation metrics that you will use in your own reviews: feasibility, originality, coolness factor, and overall quality. These project pitches are in alphabetical order based on title. You can view your assigned review assignments on the assignment sheet.

2. Project Pitch Evaluation Form

For each of your assigned project pitches, you must fill out this evaluation form (evaluation form #1). Note: you can also fill out additional review forms for as many project pitches as you would like but you must complete your assigned reviews.

3. Rank Your Top Three Favorite Project Pitches

Finally, read/skim other project pitches and rank your top three pitches by filling out this other evaluation form (evaluation form #2). This ranking will be used to coordinate group forming. We cannot guarantee that you will be placed into a group that you ranked within your top three but we will try our best. In the cases of ties, we will give priority based on timestamp (earlier is better). If we cannot assign you to one of your top three choices, we will place you on a team that seems closest to your interests.
