It was a creative idea to use weebly.  I like that you explain the format in the beginning of the lesson.   There is a way to get back to home screen and it's easy to get forward and backward.  You use visuals to illustrate the lesson, which is helpful to various types of learners and some video.  Is there a way you could have information presented through audio as well?  There are  informative pieces that help explain fractions to students.


I would like there to be specific information about the age group.  Also the picture used in the header could complement the content of the page.  It threw me off.  Perhaps you could also have the separate pages listed on the left side so people could navigate through the page that way as well.  It can be confusing to navigate through.

I would rate the ease of use a 9 out of 10 after spending about 7 minutes using it for my own review of fractions!  It's such a good idea to create a StAIR on fractions for 7th graders!  I think fractions are something that many, many, kids do not understand, even in middle school, but they are expected to and feel like they should know it by then.   This StAIR is simple and interactive, and not intimidating if the user is not comfortable with fractions.  I like the multiple choice and re-direction when an answer is wrong, and the visuals with pie charts and blocks is also helpful.   I think using Weebly for this was definitely easier than PowerPoint (which I used!). It seems to link nicely from page to page.  Such a nice example of a StAIR- I can totally see this being used as an independent work station in a classroom or at home for extra practice.    Nice work!!!  I did have a question about the last page, it seemed to get stuck, or have no ending.  Am I missing something?

I have never thought of using weebly for a webquest, the flow of site is great and was very functional.  The inlcusion of video in the midst of the lesson was very useful.  The fact that you are able to score the quiz afterwards was a great way to keep track of student understanding.
