Sorting Results

The Sorting feature in netTrekker allows users to sort Web Content Results according to a variety of criteria. Sorting a list of search results will not remove any results from your list but it will order them in a way which might make them more useful to you. You can sort a Search Results based on the following criteria:

  • the ranking of resources in that Search Result as recommended by student Voting
  • the ranking of resources in that Search Result as recommended by teacher Voting
  • the Readability level of the resource
  • the titles of the resources in alphabetical or reverse alphabetical order
  • the Overall Rating of the resource, as determined by the Content Team Educator / Evaluator

While each user has the ability to vote or recommend resources using the voting feature, the Rating comes from the Content Team Educator / Evaluator of the netTrekker resource, .
