Judging Criteria

  • Creativity
    Does the project show something that we haven't seen already? Are you just making Khan Academy? What does your application have that is different from existing educational apps?
  • Technical Complexity
    The project should be more than an HTML page downloaded from BootStrap. It should be user-friendly, something that students would want to use. This can come in the form of machine-learning algorithms, databases, wherever your mind takes you!
  • Impact
    How realistic is your application in terms of making an actual impact on our educational system? Would we want to pitch our own money to buy your product?
  • Quality
    How robust are your algorithms? How many major bugs does it have? We will be checking to see how well the application is designed.
