Please note: Version 1.2 of the Guidelines is a significant revision of the prior version based on input from multiple groups and individuals during the 1999-2001 period. On August 29, 2002, this document was approved as an American National Standard by the American National Standards Institute. The Guidelines were also modified as a result of applying evaluation instruments derived from them to educational software. Not all changes from the previous version to this one are marked. However, changes are indicated by text highlighted in pink, and additions in blue. We thank all individuals and groups who participated for their help in improving the Guidelines.
