Response paper #4

Bucket list movie Survey

Survey Participant,

The attached survey is for my English 101 course at UNM. We are conducting an experiment of sorts pertaining to evaluation and how we evaluate something common, like a movie.
Wikipedia defines evaluation as such: “Evaluation is systematic determination of merit, worth, and significance of something or someone using criteria against a set of standards. Evaluation often is used to characterize and appraise subjects of interest in a wide range of human enterprises, including the arts, criminal justice, foundations and non-profit organizations, government, health care, and other human services.” (Source link- )
I will be using a set of criteria that we came up with in class to evaluate your responses to the survey I constructed about the movie “The Bucket List.” Once I have compiled the surveys we will be writing a movie review essay using your answers. This essay is designed to help us evaluate something without our own ideas influencing the outcome.
Ison Tenney.
