Week 6 DMS Assignment

Using the skills and knowledge from this week’s web-building sessions we would like you to analyse a website home page.
Choose any site you want, it can be your own if you have one. Just make sure you include the URL in your submission.

We want you to look at the list of considerations, and mark each on a scale of 1-10. 1 being poor and 10 being excellent.

We would like to see suggestions of how you would improve the page, elements you like and dislike and what could be done to improve the page overall.

Run the site through PageSpeed Insights and screenshot the scores for mobile and desktop.


  1. The audience for the site – is it suitable for the target audience?
  2. Identify two tasks that a user is likely to complete – fill out a form, read more etc
  3. The usability of the navigation and search
  4. The visual interest of the overall page – typography, colour, amount of text/images
  5. Readability and understandability of the text
  6. The appropriateness of the site to the business
  7. How responsive is the site
  8. Suggestions to improve the site

What we want to see:
An in-depth analysis of the page supplied using the considerations above.

At least one suggestion for how to improve each element in the PageSpeed results
