General Chemistry with Labs (CHEM 161) Review Rubric


The content appears to be very comprehensive encompassing various topics of General Chemistry lectures and labs. There are 2 main folders for the main resource: Chem&161/162/163, Course Modules and Chem&161/162/163, Course Resources. Within each folder, there are several subfolders and within each subfolder, there are multiple files. It would be beneficial to provide readers instructions on the contents of each folder.

Content Accuracy

The materials appear to be fairly accurate. Explanations and meaningful illustrations were provided.

Relevance Longevity

Each of the provided material file appears to be in the right length. There is a detailed explanation as well as procedures for the lab. The relevance longevity can be primarily be due to a sequence of three general chemistry courses as a requirement for these classes.


I find the materials easy to understand. However, the organization of the materials should be clearer.


There should be consistency in the font style and font size used to avoid the readers from getting confused.


The materials are very modular. Each topic discussed as well as the corresponding labs are separated as a module. Thus, it is easier for readers to follow through.

Organization Structure Flow

The organization structure flow can be very confusing due to multiple folders and files present.


I see no issues as with regards to that may distract or confuse the reader relating to navigation problems, distortion of images/charts, and any other display features. 

Grammatical Errors

The text contains no grammatical errors.

Cultural Relevance

The materials in this resource represent classical theories and examples of General Chemistry lab/lecture.
