Note: This is the official set of specs for FALL 2021.
In an effort to balance the diverse needs of the students in this class, my plan is to use a singular "specs-grading" system for the assignments in the class, roughly corresponding to each of the individual web-design assignments. You will simply recieve one final score that will comprise 50% of your grade (the code assessment) in the class.
Note: I will NOT be posting the official set of specs all at once; they will be updated periodically in accordance with class material. You may review the last set of specifications here. I can guarantee they won't change extensively, but I cannot guarantee they will be identical. I recommend, but do not require, following along with the class and not jumping ahead.
Here are the requirements, in increasing order of grade values.
Have a self-created main page, available via http://torch.cci.fsu.edu through clicking a URL. It must display some text.
By putting another folder named
in the folder designated at (substituting your FSUID for "FSUID", of course)
and subsquently putting inside of the "lis5362" folder a file named
It should be available exactly at the following URL (note it is DIFFERENT from the above, i.e. the tilde and the public_html folder present differences)
By using the name "index.html" for the file, this should also make it available at simply
Your webpage must conform to a standard html format. (It need not "validate" perfectly, but it must follow the basic structure of an HTML Document)
It must include
- A unique title
- A headline
- Content in the "body"
- A header
- Must have at least one more page, with the pages linked to one another
- Must contain both an article and another division (or "div") with its own unique id attribute.
- Must make use of paragraphs
- Must contain one or more (absolute, for reasons you ought to understand) links to an *external* website
- Must contain one or more (relative, also for reasons you ought to understand) links to another internal page.
- Must contain one or more inline images. It may either be absolute or relative. Note that relative will require that you upload your own image, while absolute will require you possibly being a rude webmaker (though many sites are cool with this, do your research)
Some CSS styling, as follows:
- At least one example of styling utilizing an EXTERNAL style sheet (i.e. a linked file). Call this file "style.css" and ensure it is in your main folder
- At least one example of EMBEDDED or IN-LINE styling (i.e., somewhere in the actual HTML itself.)
- At least one "english" color, one RGB color, and one HSL color
- At least one instance of "non-default" CSS box model styling
- At least one instance of "non-default" CSS positioning
- Your site must be be "responsive" (i.e. present differently based on the device or screen in which it is viewed) by being "dynamic" (i.e. through media queries and differing CSS based on the device.)
Note, missing small parts of the above does not automatically disqualify you from the higher grades; partial credit will be given for partially completed stages.
