Item# Points - description
- 0 points - no graded BlackBoard Discussions for Week 11, but, there are some interesting Forums, check it out!!!
- 10 points - Tutorial 8's Example WebSite, Tree and Book. You don't need to read the remainder of the Grading Rubric until you finish Tree and Book WebPage
- 10 points - Discussion of WebSite Elements.
- 10 points - The repeating Rubric Items from past Assignments. These are: (1) start with HTML Template; (2) use a folder; (3) HTML and (4) CSS are well documented/commented. (5) HTML is error free as certified by W3C Markup Validator. (6) CSS style sheet(s) are error free as certified by W3C CSS Validation Service.
- 10 points - Web pages have visual appeal, are themed, and are easy to navigate (as judged by George), you remember. Only one WebSite will earn 10 points, others less.
- 25 points - You will design a dessertWEB WebSite that is unique. One that is NOT an exact copy of textbook p.HTML 632 (near Figure 6-84). One that is not an image of a fellow student's. Plan ahead, remember StoryBoards? Your WebSite will be a minimum of 4 WebPages. One WebPage will be the Apple Bavarian Torte recipe page and should incorporate all the content that is provided, the Ingredients, the Directions, the Recipe Box, and the Reviews. Include the navigation buttons, the Reviews, List of Categories, and the list of Related Recipes. Currently there are 7 navigation buttons on the top of the dessertWEB page. You should have one button for each of your pages. You may rename the buttons if you like. One of your WebPages can be a "Splash Page" named index.html. A splash page is a simple home page for a WebSite that serves to introduce visitors to your WebSite. I know that you have see many WebSites that use a "Splash Page". One of your pages WILL be a "links" page, a list of recipes, and a list of links to related external WebSites, both. Remember, your WebSite needs to be easy to navigate, every WebPage easy to find. This will require design on your part. So, you earn seven (7) points for each WebPage, maximum 25 points.
- 30 points - A Style Sheet named dweffects.css that implements (1) shadows, (2) opacity, (3) blur, (4) background gradients, and (5) rotates an object. Make certain each is well documented. Six (6) points each, maximum 30 points.
- 5 points - A Style Sheet named print.css used to apply print styles -- textbook p.HTML 595 (near Figure 8-40). One half (½) point for each unique style used to format a printed page, maximum 5 points. Make certain each is well documented.
- 0 points - PLEASE, if you feel that you have a valid reason why your WebSite didn't meet a Grading Rubric Item, use your WebSite Elements essay to explain such. For example, you may have one error from W3C MarkUp Validator that you feel is not really an error. Explain why, you will likely get full credit.
Please, make sure you link your WebSite Elements WebPage and your dessertWeb Redesigned WebPage to/from the your Tree and Book WebPage. For grading purposes, you need to make navigation from page to page as easy as possible. Because the pages of your WebSite are linked together, when you send eMail to George to turn-in this assignment, you need only to include the URL to the main WebPage.
100 points - TOTAL
