Assessment and Judging Criteria
The following criteria will help the judges in their assessment of the projects:
- Completeness : Has the project achieved the initial goals set – assuming a plan was followed?
- Originality : To what extent is this the result of original effort (e.g. the Colossus rebuild was the first rebuild)?
- Outreach : Is the result of the work visible to experts in the field and/or to the general public? If not, might it be turned into a (museum) exhibit for display?
- Ingenuity: What new techniques or processes were developed during the project?
- Impact : What contribution has the work made to growing the understanding of the history of computing?
- Publicity : To what extent has the work already been publicised or written up?
- Discovery :What was the extent of the research done to re-discover the past?
