Hi John,

 

I meant that they were beyond the guidelines - if you have them at Level 1.

If you put them with a SC that is at an appropriate level they may be fine
as strategies. 

 

We need to be very careful about what we post as interpretations of the
guidelines - or they can change the meaning and scope.  Oops I meant the SC
mostly - but guidelines too I guess

Something doesn't look right.

This is listed as gateway technique for 1.3 level 1. 

But it says. 

"Ensure that content can be presented in a sequence that makes sense."

And 

Use visual design to make clear how the content is organized.

First - these aren't techniques-they are requirements. 

Second - that is way beyond level 1

So something is messed up - or the layout makes it look like it is.

John replies:

Here is a new draft. I don't think I have addressed Gregg's second point,
which seems to me something that needs discussion. I would like to hear more
from Gregg and others on this point.

 

I've tried to addres Gregg's first point (about seeming to impose new
requirements beyond those that are in the actual Guidelines document) by
going through and eliminating phrases like "Ensure that ... etc." except
where that phrase is in the Guideline or one of the SuccessCriteria.

 

Hope this helps.

John
