Assignment 1 Specification
The purpose of the report is to provide a critical evaluation of the nominated websites and to support
your observations and recommendation convincingly. By performing an in-depth evaluation of the
following websites:
Website 1:
https://www.rebelsport.com.au
Website 2: https://www.nickscali.com.au/
Upon the completion of the task, you are to provide a formal report documenting your critical evaluation
of the two websites. The report should draw particular attention to the interactive aspects and user
interface design of the website. Support your critique with appropriate HCI design and evaluation
principles as described in Chapter 1, 2, and 4 of your textbook (Shneiderman & Plaisant, 2010).
In your report you should:
1. Provide an overview and description of the nominated websites.
2. Identify and elaborate the main features of the websites, drawing on your first impression of the
websites, accessibility, navigation, homepage, etc. (Refer to Powell,T 2002. Web Design: The
Complete Reference, 2nd Ed, Chapter 5, http://webdesignref.com/chapters/ch05.htm)
3. Compare and contrast the two websites against the HCI design principles and usability principles.
4. Based on your critique and analysis in items (1) to (3) above, provide a recommendation on how
the websites should be improved. Conversely, if further improvement is not required, then provide
the reasons why that this is the case.
PLEASE NOTE:
Except for item (4) of the above, all assertions relating to user interface design principles (e.g. statements
like ‘blue text on red background is a poor colour combination’) must be supported by references or critical
observation. You can cite additional scholarly references other than the textbook. (Note: Do not use
Wikipedia as a source of reference).
You can also snapshot the parts you evaluate from the site and show it in your report for more clarity
evidence. And Figures Tables and or diagrams can be added as needed.
