Hi Alistair, All,

Maybe not all processes on a website are that relevant that they should be included into complete processes. It can be that some complete processes could be kept out of the scope of the evaluation and some not. Maybe we can define the reasons for in- or exclusion in to the scope of the evaluation?

Another problem is when parts of the proces are outside of the website. Example: some municipalities in NL use an external company for payment of their online products. The whole website and process is on the municipality website except the final payment. Is it then inside or outside of the scope? Inside would mean that in an evaluation of a website you could end up also evaluating another website.

The team writing UWEM1.2 in an EU project some years ago chose to look at the page level to avoid this discussion, but I think we have to cover it in the Methodology now.

Hi All,

Just adding to my previous mail.

The simplest way to find complete processes might be to search (scan) the site for forms (excluding those in every page i.e. search)... Saying that, search (and other 'on every page' forms) probably should be included once as a complete process.

Again, all the best
