Did you know that CTREX Pro Subscribers can “bookmark” reviews for future reference?

While logged in, click on the star next to any title. This will save the review to your profile page. You can view your profile by selecting the icon with your username in the top-right.

Bookmarking has been available for a while now, but now you can create your own folders to organize your bookmarks into as many lists as you want. You can even print these lists or export their data.

Need to find a handful of titles on a certain topic? Create a new folder and move your bookmarks to it. The next time you need to compile a list, your old bookmarks will remain separate. Using this new tool, you can use CTREX to manage your research more flexibly.

Check it out, and let us know what you think! We're always looking for ways to improve the CTREX experience.
Introducing the CTR Flex Rubric
CTR's new tool for evaluating interactive media using an adaptable set of criteria
The Flex Rubric is CTR's new tool for evaluating interactive media using an adaptable set of criteria. Because a single set of criteria may not apply to all types of products, CTR has created an array of rubrics comprised of custom-picked Quality Attributes designed to fit various genres. These Quality Attributes can be weighted by the reviewer depending on the perceived importance of each criterion in any particular case. Publishers and CTR Subscribers can evaluate products with the Flex Rubric on CTREX to share their own opinions and become a part of the exchange. A custom rubric tool is also available to rate products using up to ten Quality Attributes.

Back in 1968, Fred Rogers started a challenging career in television to “make goodness attractive.” That was back when televisions that were the size of washing machines, and you could count the number of children’s television programs on one hand. Although the children’s media landscape has changed dramatically, Fred Rogers’ values have not. In our study of children’s interactive media, we've found that Fred’s attributes for quality in children’s media transfer well to touch screens and game consoles. Based on the principles upon which he designed his Neighborhood, we believe he’d like apps with these six attributes. Note that this rubric has no formal association with the Fred Rogers Center or the Fred Rogers Company.
