There will be one (1) website critique report due during the semester. The length of the report should be between 1-2 pages. Basically, I would like you to find a national government-related website and review it critically, kind of like you would do with a book review. By “national government”, I mean any site that originates from the federal government or interacts with the federal government. For example, sites dealing with interest groups, political parties, think-tanks, political organizations, etc.would be fine as long as they are not directed at the “state-level”.
As part of your report, let me know if the site has good information, if you found it useful, if you would recommend it, etc. This assignment will exercise your “surfing” skills and ask you to research and evaluate information available on a national government-related website. This report will be worth up to 50 points. Check out the “website critique report materials” folder below for links to website evaluation criteria that you should use as you critique your website, as well as a link to a sample report for you to review.
The grade that you receive on this report will be based upon how well you follow the criteria and how complete you make your reports. Do keep in mind that not all of the criteria listed will necessarily be applicable to your website. However, do try to follow as much of the criteria as possible.
