RateMyService: Lessons SANS group
What is our plan? Our site will allow users to rate the quality of tutors or trainers that they have had. In addition, a user may come to our site to find a tutor. We will scrape the listings from Craig’s List and present them in an easier to use format, with intuitive links to relevant reviews.
How does a user rate a tutor? When the user clicks on “Review a Teacher/Tutor”: 1.User is prompted to enter as much information as he or she knows. 2.User is presented with a list of tutors that may be a match. a)User selects a tutor from the user. b)User clicks a button to submit a review for a new tutor. 3.After this, the user may enter a evaluation. This rating system will be powered by WordPress.
Rating criteria Tutors will be rated on: Knowledge (1-5 stars) Price (1-5 stars) Personality (1-5 stars) Overall (1-5 stars) Recommend? (yes/no) Comment (free text)
