Consider: Does this material cover the content your class will learn?

If not, how far off is it? If the material has several points you like and only a few you don't, consider using part of it or adapting it for your class.

Consider: How do you normally evaluate materials? 

Don't lower your standards. There is a wide variety of quality in available OER materials.
