Criteria for Web projects evaluation
INSS 701 - Internet Development for Business
The art of project evaluation is not easily quantified and depends upon many subjective factors.
What follows are general criteria that I will use to evaluate your projects. All comparisons and
evaluations are relative, so I don't have a metric to each of the items listed, but the items serve as
a set of guidelines for your project design and implementation.
- fast page loading
- good navigation tools
- multiple uses (customer service, cost control, publishing, etc), considering new and
- integrated design comprising a presentation
- development of a suitable presence for the client
- feedback and "what is new" placed somewhere in presentation
- useful text information
- spelling errors free text
- appropriate use of guidelines for Web use (customer service, cost control, publishing,
- drill down opportunities without "many-clicks" syndrome
- images used to illustrate and show products, services, etc
- links to related and useful Web sites
- no HTML errors
- background color or paper
- at least one advanced navigation tool (imagemaps, frames, tables, Java Script) used
- mailto working with future maintainers' address, or a group member (if no client)
The above criteria are sometimes conflicting and you should do the best trade-off possible, in
order to achieve a balance and convey your client's message. I will provide early feedback by e-mail if you have a project draft for me to review prior the final submission.
