Quality of Content:
The content covered in this lesson plan offered valid software. Google Docs is a free service that people in all areas of work and personal life utilize. It's an area that students can greatly benefit from learning. Peer-editing is also a skill that students will use not only in school, but when they go into the work force. The skills addressed are necessary and relevant to student learning. It especially ties into the discipline of English where students are constantly writing essays and collaborating with peers.Regardless of the context, people will always have to get together to discuss ways to improve something.

Ease of Use:
- Are the labels, buttons, menus, text, and general layout of the computer interface consistent and visually distinct?
- Does the user get trapped in the material?
- Can the user get lost easily in the material?
