Outcomes Assessment

Students must demonstrate advanced Web page building skills by performing required tasks. Students are expected to know HTML well enough to hand-code their Web pages. Flash movies and DHTML code will be given to students to add to their pages. Students will demonstrate that they know how to locate JavaScript applets on the Internet and use them on their Web site. Students are expected to pass the class exams, which will consist of both written tests and assigned activities. When students can perform the Web site assignments on their own within a given time frame, and upload and edit their work, they will have learned the concepts.
