Dear Eval TF,

I think all the questions make sense, and also the suggestion of 
breaking down question #2. I also like the question about the role of 
the Evaluation Commissioner in the sampling process.

I would also add several typical situations to question #1 (at least for 
us):

- [checkbox] Pre-sales activities (evaluating websites in order to 
initiate a contract or to tell a client about its current accessibility)

- [checkbox] Evaluate websites in early/medium development stages (I 
know that for now WCAG-EM states that this is not covered, but I think 
this is at least 1/3 of my current work at Technosite)

- [checkbox] Deliver training about Web accessibility evaluation 
(although it makes no difference with "normal" evaluations, we can use 
popular websites or the client's website to do the exercises)

There are other questions that could be broken down (for example, the 
size of the website would probably influence less in "Basic" analysis).

In addition, to ensure that the client doesn't change only the 
previously audited pages, we usually change the sample process between 
the first evaluation and further reviews. A possible question could be:

# How does re-evaluation of a website influence the sample? (text)

Kind regards,
Ramón.
