Categorical Classification

  1. Functionality refers to whether the functions are working purposefully, without errors and quintessential in the activities carried out by the user.
  2. Content focuses on providing the right information to the right user in the appropriate activity context.
  3. Labels should be appropriately named such that the user knows what each label is for to navigate the site.
  4. Presentation deals with the colors and shapes displayed on the website.
  5. Layout deals with where and how each detail on the page is displayed.
  6. Navigation ensures that the user needs as little clicks as possible to get where he or she wants to.
  7. Speed of response is the concern that the application processes pages and requests quickly.
  8. Documentation & Help ensures that the user intuitively understands the process flow, and functions of the website, with or without built in assistance.
