The Program for Art on Film has developed guidelines for evaluating media
on art. Based on guidelines developed by the (then) Educational Film
Library Association (EFLA), these guidelines can also be adapted to other
subjects. EFLA also published a "Manual for Film Evaluation" (1974) which
you might find in some libraries. I assume it is now out-of-print. For
more information, you can contact me at the address below.
