Survey Philosophy

The surveys made use of freely-available Web-based tools:

  • Methodology is open
  • No software needs to be installed locally (apart from Web browser)
  • Findings can be reproduced
  • Latest results can be obtained by clicking on link to testing service

The surveys typically examined project entry points and not entire Web site as:

  • This page has the highest profile
  • The aim is to validate a methodology which can be deployed by projects themselves, not to test every page on behalf of the projects
