INP 153: User Experience Deliverable Grading Criteria
Quality of Analysis (18 points)
- Analysis is detailed and comprehensive.
- Arguments and rationales are presented clearly.
- Issues salient to the deliverable and to the user experience are highlighted and explored.
- Suggestions are appropriate and possible to implement.
- Specific examples of issues are included.
Presentation (12 points)
- Each deliverable should begin with the user experience deliverable grade sheet (PDF, 10k), followed by a cover page, the table of contents page, then an executive summary page. Additional document sections are noted in the instructions for the specific deliverable (linked from the class schedule).
- The executive summary, which introduces the document and summarizes the main points and findings, should be no more than one page in length. Try to fill one full page but do not go beyond that.
- Wherever possible in the executive summary use bullet points to summarize important conclusions and points. This enhances its scannability (and most executives will be visually scanning it).
- All required sections are present in the document.
- Minimum document length is met.
- Single-spaced lines are used.
- Paragraph content is flush left.
- Content is free of typos and grammatical issues.
- The report is written in the third person.
- First person ("I", "We", "Our") and second person ("You", "Your") phrasing is avoided.
- Sentences flow well; awkward phrasing is avoided.
- Slang terms are avoided.
- The tone of the writing is professional and not conversational.
- Text size and margins are acceptable and consistent.
- No other visual inconsistencies are present (such as inconsistent line spacing, inconsistent indentation, inconsistent text sizes for headings at a given level, inconsistent usage of fonts, etc.).
- Include a header that indicates the type of deliverable and the website analyzed / current project.
- Provide the page number in either the header or the footer.
- Include your name on the cover page.
- Print documents single-sided.
- Make sure that the pages are stapled together, with a single staple in the upper left corner.
- Do not submit your report in a binder or slip-cover.
