Web Design

Web Design Rules:

  • Entries in this category will demonstrate a cohesive, engaging, and unique student created website.
  • Content may include text, video, pictures, animations, or anything that conveys your message.
  • Use of templates or pre-designed website may result in a lower score.
  • Entries must be self-contained (must include all actual files and folders rather than including outside links).
  • Opening page should be named index.htm.

Judging Criteria:

  • Curriculum Connection (30%): The education purpose is clearly evident; completion of this project results in the student’s mastery of subject-area and Tech TEKS; careful attention is given to writing, spelling, and grammar.
  • Content (20%): Information is relevant, well-organized, and easy to understand; the purpose of the site is clearly evident.
  • Visual Design (20%): Design enhances rather than distracts from the project; includes appropriate graphics, colors, and layout to convey the message; design is consistent across all pages.
  • Functionality (20%): Navigation is easy to follow and understand; a menu on each page allows users to locate information quickly and intuitively; site has working links, is browser agnostic, and is free from coding or script errors.
  • Credits/Work Cited (10%): All works are properly credited and permission is granted in writing for their use, if applicable; all sources are properly cited (http://citationgenerator.weebly.com/).
