This scale was created to help compare how well a website operates looking at explicit criteria. The criteria chosen in this illustration aligns with the four criteria listed in this evaluation. Regulatory compliance (access to information), ambiguity (navigation, readability), and modifications and updates (maintenance and user interface).
Looking at the Detroit Employment Solutions Corporation website, the biggest strength is the access to information.
