Location: Step 3.b: Include a Randomly Selected Sample

Priority: strong

Current wording: "The number of web pages and web page states to randomly
select is 10% of the structured sample selected through the previous steps,
with a minimum of 5 instances of web pages and web page states."

Suggested revisions:

A. Amend - possibly in a note - the requirement of a minimum of 5 randomly
selected instances of web pages and web page states to account for simple
sites that will only require a very small sample.

B. Clarify what selecting a random sample of states means when creating a
sample for web apps or remove the requirement for an additional random
sample for web apps.

Rationale:
A. For some sites, the page sample can be very small: Think of a blog that
may just have the default start page view and a bog entry page, with simple
text-only blog entries. A minimum of 5 randomly selected pages / states
does not make sense in such a case. Another edge case are 'one-pagers'
which provide a minimal presentation for a company or product. There is
sometimes literally just one page to test.

B. For web apps, it is not clear how the evaluator should select states
randomly. I can think of no procedure as there is usually not a list of
URLs, search hits or similar to work from.
