Hi He Yun,

I can see you put a lot of efforts on your stAIR design. Great points of your work are the followings:

* You have recorded voice for right and wrong choices

* You have chosen great pictures

* You have got a great explanation of the tests

* You have applied the UDL principle in general

Things you can improve

* Put it into kiosk mood, so that there is no confusion when students proceed by clicking on the slides or on the action button the result is very different and they tend to miss slides

* reorganize the order of your presents so that quiz and knowledge match better


Overall you did a great job, thanks!

I really enjoyed this topic that you chose for your StAIR. I like how you started it out with a question, making us guess which picture was the moon cake. It was also neat learning about the legends of why moon cakes are eaten. They look really delicious and I would love to try one some day :)

I think you did a very nice job providing options for comprehension for the content in your project. You provided the background knowledge about where moon cakes came from; which is essentially the legends about why they are eaten in China. And also, the critical features were highlighted in your presentation; in my opinion this was what they are (made of) and when they are eaten.

I have a couple suggestions that I think would make the ease of use better for this StAIR. First, it was a little confusing at first when I got a question to the quiz correct but then I was told to go back to the previous screen. I did realize that I had to go back to the next screen simply to move on, but it might have been nice if I could have moved on right from the slide that told me I was correct, instead of going back. Second, for the last question of the presentation, I got it right and was told to go back, but from there I wasn’t able to go anywhere else. I noticed on your PowerPoint when it wasn’t in presentation mode that after this question there was a “The End” slide, but I wasn’t able to make it there when viewing your presentation. If there had been a button on the slide that told me I answered the question correctly to take me to the next slide, I might have been able to make it to that last slide that send “The End” easier.

I can tell that you put a lot of effort into your StAIR, nice job!!
