Upload: Excel spreadsheet with all five (5) categories completed
For this assignment, you will be performing a heuristic
evaluation on your team’s website using the UserFocus 246 heuristics
Excel spreadsheet at https://www.userfocus.co.uk/pdf/ExpertReviewCheckpoints.xlsLinks to an external site..
You will be using this Excel spreadsheet, and you only need to complete the following five (5) categories:
Home page usability (20 guidelines)
Navigation and IA (29 guidelines)
Trust and credibility (13 guidelines)
Writing and content quality (23 guidelines)
Page layout and visual design (38 guidelines)
You must evaluate using ALL of the guidelines under these categories, which is a total of 123 guidelines,
using the rating system built into the Excel spreadsheet. The rating
system is 1 (fully compliant), 0 (partially compliant) and -1
(non-compliant).
Each guideline should have a rating (if applicable) and thorough
comments; your comments should be supported with examples from the pages
to justify your rating. For example, if the guideline states “Pages are
quick to scan, with ample headings and sub-headings and short
paragraphs” and you give a rating of -1, give examples from pages as to
why the site is non-compliant.
Your heuristic evaluation spreadsheet must include:
Rating for every guideline under the Home page usability, Navigation
and IA, Trust and credibility, Writing and content quality, and page
layout and visual design categories (if applicable). If a guideline does
not apply to your team’s site, leave the number blank but in the
Comments column, write an explanation as to why the guideline is
irrelevant to the site
Thorough comments and examples from the site to justify your ratings
that are a 0 or -1 (in other words, those that are not fully compliant)
Grading Criteria:
The following is the grading rubric for the assignment, with points possible in parentheses:
All guidelines are addressed with either a rating or an explanation of irrelevance to site (out of 61.5 points)
Any ratings of 0 or -1 have thorough comments and appropriate examples for non-compliance (out of 13.5 points)

This
assignment may seem easy, but a thorough heuristic evaluation of a
website can take an hour or two, plus time to type up your evaluation
and add in any supporting comments and examples as justification.
You will not be using Nielsen’s heuristics but a set of heuristics by UserFocus (located at https://www.userfocus.co.uk/resources/guidelines.html). You must address all statements under the five (5) categories listed on the Assignment 3
page. Be sure to use the Comments area in the spreadsheet to justify
the rating you gave. I expect to see examples from the site to help
support the score you gave it (there is a built-in scale in the Excel
spreadsheet, so you do not need to choose a severity scale). If you
would like to include screenshots as justification, you can do this in a
separate document (PDF); just be sure to reference which screenshot
goes with which statement.
All three lectures factor into this
assignment. The heuristic evaluation lecture gives you an overview of
the process. The information design, content/functionality, and
information architecture lectures are directly related to the three
largest of the five categories. Review all lectures before attempting to
complete the spreadsheet!
