4 . Issues not covered by policy

Issues not covered - generally did not look at the big picture. Rather you restricted yourselves to the issues covered in the 3 policies you analysed. You should also have drawn on your general knowledge of information technology as well as your use of IT in the context of your studies, work, home etc.

5 . Evaluation of policy with respect to target audience

Audience - many of you totally ignored this aspect of the analysis. You did not consider the needs of the target audience, business requirements or type of transactions that you would expect to be undertaken on the systems that the policy was referring too. A scientific research centre has very different requirements (both legally and ethically) regarding use of computer systems than does a public library! Such issues have to be considered when considering the effectiveness of a policy with respect to the target audience.
The evaluation of the policy with respect to the target audience was generally poor. In many cases the different requirements, rights and responsibilities of the target users was often overlooked.
Insufficient discussion of policy with regards to its target audience. Failed to state why this policy is appropriate for its target audience.

14. Comparison of policies

Either this was not done at all or the policies were simply compared. A table does NOT constitute a suitable response to this part of the assignment. Further, this part needed to be completed AFTER all 3 policies had been analysed. This section was intended for you to reflect on WHY the policies are different.

19. Evaluation of policy

You only considered the positives or your policy and ignored the negative aspects. Generic policies do NOT work as a blanket solution, as you would have identified if you had done a thorough analysis and evaluation earlier. 
 
They can only be used as a template to assist organisation in developing their policy, a means of ensuring they have considered all RELEVANT issues relating to use of their computer systems. The requirements of the host organisation dictate how much of the policy is worded and what it covers. The type of transactions that are undertaken determine policy requirements. The knowledge and skills of the user will also determine how the policy should be designed and worded. 
 
Children using a public library or in primary school cannot be expected to read and understand a policy that has been designed for a commercial business environment for example. Similarly, the simplification required for children would not be suited to a scientific research establishment that handles high security data.
 
Great Example - "The best way to sum up usage policies is to say they themselves are human. There is diversity within diversity in humans and it is the same with usage policies. What is true for one man is not true for another man; what is true for one organisation is not true for another organisation. Even if two organisations have the same likeness and similar scopes, common truths are still rare as they are based on their services and their activities.
As shown in the generic policy, it tries to satisfy people of multiple audiences but fails as the diversity causes conflicts within the groups."
