Here are two  interestingly simple app evaluation rubric you can use with your students to assess the educational apps you want to use in your class.  The first one is a rubric we learned through Kathy Schlock’s iPad4teaching page. This is basically a Google sheets template available for free in Drive Template Gallery. The second one is a template we discovered through running a search query with the key phrase 'app evaluation' in Template Gallery. These are probably the only two app evaluation templates available in the Gallery so far.

1-App Evaluation
The rubric features several criteria for assessing apps. These include: the intuitivity of the app’s interface, content sharing options within the app, privacy related issues with the app’s settings, quality of multimedia, accessibility/inaccessibility of inappropriate content through the app, flexibility in use within the app and many more.

2- iPad App Evaluation
This is another handy and down-to-earth simple document to help you assess educational apps. It is particularly useful for ‘groups to try, report, recommend individual apps for student/teacher use’.

For a list of some excellent app evaluation rubrics and resources, Kathy Schrock has this wonderful page packed full of everything you need. Enjoy
