"This project is not a “report” where you simply provide a bunch of information. On the contrary, creative design and artistic arrangement must be part of the outcome. The page you design should look highly professional and should be appealing in every way. Information has to be brief and precise, since visitors to the site don’t want to wade through a verbal swamp, but it does have to be complete. This will require creativity to balance these requirements. It isn’t easy!"

Evaluating a Good Project

Evaluating a Good Project:

When looking at student projects from previous semesters, think about how well they accomplished the following:

  • Content - does it contain useful information? Are there noticeable gaps of information? Is it on topic and seem accurate?
  • Writing - is it clear, concise, and easy to understand?
  • Layout/Structure - does the layout of the site make it easy to navigate? Does the layout help guide you through the content?
  • Use of Sources - does it use several, credible sources? Are they cited properly, yet unobtrusively?
  • Images - is there a good balance of image to text? Do the images relate strongly to the topic and other content?
