The three categories Traditional Information Sources, Information and Communication Technology and Equipment and Furniture, represent no rating of quality. Therefore both juries will assess the quality of the products by means of a test and evaluation system. The jury of teachers will focus primarily on educational and didactic aspects. The expert jury will concentrate first and foremost on basic aspects, educational value, design and sustainability. It is also important that the qualitative criteria are assessed in relation to the category. The first qualitative criterion (category and level-specific foundations) is a necessary precondition for the second qualitative criterion. Thus the product must achieve a minimum number of points in order to be assessed against the second, third and fourth qualitative criteria. After this whole process, a short arithmetic assessment will be undertaken.
Products which have achieved enough points in all four quality criteria will reach the narrow selection for a quality award. If in addition to high quality a product displays innovation of an unparalleled nature, and has changed the world of learning and teaching, it will be considered for the innovation award.
The arithmetic short assessment will be calculated using a five point scale. Points from one to five will be given according to each test aspect.
