Your StAIR was very informative, packed with lots of information. I think you did a good job of explaining everything for people who may not be so familiar with that type of knowledge.

Technical Remarks:

The only thing I would suggest would be to add some videos or something that would add a little diversity to keep the persons interest and in case they learn better by that than by reading.

Ease of use: I think your StAIR will be easy for students to follow

What you did well: I think you did a great job, and thoroughly covered the information.

What you could add to make the resource more useful: I think the student may benefit from a little quiz covering all sections at the end in addition to the quizes at the end of each section.

This is a great resource!  Very easy to use and follow, with great objectives.  I was particularly impressed with the reteaching slides when a wrong choice was made in the quiz section.  Your attention to detail was clearly evident.  I really wouldn’t change anything about the StAIR, but one addition that could be made would be to add some multimedia, like a video section or something of the like.  However, that is not in anyway necessary.  Great job!
