Evaluating criteria is a very important part of everyday life, and it is especially important when making major decisions. For example, if you wished to major in Psychology (as I do), you would need to evaluate different colleges to see which ones best suited that major. Criteria that you may consider would be: 1. Does the school offer the classes necessary to obtain a Psychology degree? 2. How far could you go with your degree? That is, could you obtain a doctorate, a Master's Degree, or only an Associate's or Bachelor's Degree? Depending on the level at which you wished to work this type of criteria could be very important. If the schools you were thinking about going to did not pass your criteria, you would know in advance and could choose an alternative route. Without evaluating the criteria, there would be no way for you to make an informed choice.
