The website itself will count for 20 percent of your grade. If it is turned in on time and is complete and without major flaws, you will get a baseline of 80 points. You may get additional points for quality, originality, creativity and application of principles we have covered in class as well as demonstrating good understanding of audience and available tools available. Points will be docked for missing deadlines, incomplete work, errors and quality issues.
