Your suggested wording said that if a technique was in the baseline it could
be used to meet the SC.   That was ambiguous is all.

 

Is the wording we proposed to fix this problem work for you too?

Yes, we are trying to explain the behavior of the checkboxes, so people will
understand what happens to the checklist when they select various
checkboxes.

 

I'm not sure what you are trying to get at with the following comments. Is
there something in the proposal that implies that advisory techniques can be
used to meet SC? Or that they will be included in the checklist? Or that
they can always be used by themselves to meet SC?

 

Loretta

 

 

Advisory techniques are in the baseline and can't be used to meet the SC.

 

Also - techniques often cannot be used by themselves to meet the SC. 

 

 

 

Is what you are trying to do to explain the behavior of the checklists?

 

We thought of the same thing.   

 

Look at

And see if this fixes what you want.

Team B discussed the checklist during our meeting today. We'd like to
include the following explanation before the checkboxes at the beginning of
the document, so people will understand how the checkboxes function:

 

<proposal>

If a technology is in the baseline, techniques for that technology can be
used to satisfy the success criteria. If a technology is used in the content
but is not in the baseline, the common failures for that technologies must
be avoided, but that technology cannot be used to satisfy the success
criteria. Selecting a technology will include its common failures in the
checklist. If the technology is also in the baseline, sufficient techniques
for meeting the success criteria using that technology will also be included
in the checklist.

</proposal>

Latest version of checklist is at
http://preview.trace.wisc.edu/~vander/Annotated%20Checklist%20Latest/

 

This is just a draft -  it is marked up for easy troubleshooting. 

As we find errors we will fix them on this copy.

 

Then (Monday or Tues) we will 

1)   take out the color coding 

2)   remove note at the top

and post it along with informational notes.

 

So - take a look.  Make any suggestions etc.

 

 

NOTE:  This page uses JavaScript but also works just fine with JavaScript
turned off. 

 

If you see anything that violates our guidelines - let us know soonest.    

 

We know the colors (contrast) do but they are just for debugging and will
disappear Mon or Tue.   We were going to remove them but thought it might
help people reviewing this. 

 

 

Thanks


Gregg & Loretta
