The report should draw particular attention to the interactive aspectsand user interface design of the website. Support your critique with appropriate HCI design andevaluation principles as described in Chapter text book. 1, 2, and 4 of your textbook (Shneiderman &Plaisant, 2010).REPORT STRUCTURE:1. Introduction – State the purpose and objectives of the report.2. Discussion – Build your arguments into a cohesive thread, presenting your observations andfindings that you have collated from section (1) to (3) from ‘WHAT TO INCLUDE’ section.3.

Conversely, if furtherimprovement is not required, then provide the reasons why that this is the case.PLEASE NOTE:• Except for item (4) of the above, all assertions relating to user interface designprinciples (e.g. statements like ‘blue text on red background is a poor colourcombination’) must be supported by references or critical observation. You can citeadditional scholarly references other than the textbook. (Note: Do not use Wikipediaas a source of reference).• You can also snapshot the parts you evaluate from the site and show it in your reportfor more clarity evidence.
