Higher education institutions are constantly looking for ways to evaluate their students and the outcomes of their programs. Currently under development is a Web-based program assessment tool that will allow institutions, school curriculum committees and faculty to easily generate questions and exams to evaluate their curricula. Students will also be able to evaluate their knowledge at the end of their program of study. My project involves the research of best practices and guidelines for the development of the user interface of the program assessment tool. The deliverables of this project are a checklist with important points to be considered when developing the user interface, and an HTML prototype that will graphically illustrate the main guidelines for this tool.
