Dear EOWG,

Ref: <http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/Overview.html>

Please find an initial implementation of the rough outlined described

Please note that the text is taken from the current Evaluating Web Sites
document so please don't spend time looking at it, we will have plenty
of that at the face-to-face. Instead, please look at the overall
break-down of the document into smaller modules, and let me know what
you think of this new structure.

Subject: Getting back into the Evaluation Resource Suite

In recent months we've been working on the "Selecting Evaluation Tools
Web Accessibility" page,
which will eventually live within the Evaluation Resource Suite;
and we have a bit more editing to do on that page.

But we also have some revisions pending on the Evaluation Resource Suite
a whole, and plan to spend some of our meeting time at the Technical 
Plenary EOWG face-to-face working on that.

For background before the face-to-face meeting, it would be helpful to 
review the Eval Resource Suite changelog, most of which can be found at
and the rest at

In addition, Shadi is starting to look at how to incorporate some of the

change requests, and proposes that we consider something such as the 
following rough outline for a mild re-organization of the current 
information. Please remember that we are saving major revisions for
in the year.

Here are some initial thoughts from Shadi, and please look for more 
information from him on the mailing list:

+ overall introductory page about evaluating web sites
  - current introduction about different forms of evaluations
  - small business case like intro about benefits of evaluations
  + dedicated page for preliminary evaluations
   - small description about pros and cons of such an evaluation
   - current content but restructured with more subheadings
   - links to the appropriate section of the existing tools list
  + dedicated page for comprehensive evaluations
   - description about the limitations of such an evaluation
   - current content but restructured with more subheadings
   - links to the appropriate section of the existing tools list
