    I'm getting 1/2 marks on my evaluation. Any tips on how to gain full 5/6 marks please! Thank you!!

    Questions are:
    -Justify your design decisions
    -Suggest further improvements
    And something else forgot lol think it was about target audience.

    I think you have to write quite a bit to get top marks. I would write about at least 3 design decisions. So for each paragraph I would say the design decision you made when creating the website, eg. using a bright colour scheme, then explain why you did it, eg. to make the theme of the website look exciting and lively.
    Then explain how this relates to your target audience/purpose, so your audience might be young children so you chose a lively colour scheme to appeal to them and grab their attention, so that they carry on browsing the website.
    Then explain what you could do to improve it, like I don't know, using a blue background instead of yellow, and then state why this would improve the user's experience, eg. the blue would make the user feel calm and peaceful and want to stay on the website (this is a terrible example, I know!).

    Then do that at least twice more. Sometimes you have to act a bit dumb and state the obvious, and it's mostly 'bs'ing your way through it.I hope this helps a little!

    Thank you so much! I will have to practise a lot as I'm getting 1-3 marks constantly.

    I find that when im struggling to achieve those mark its best too look at the mark scheme or examiners comments from past papers. That way you know how and what to cover and what mistakes other people have made! Your teacher should know where to find them if you don't.
    sometimes taking screen shots helps aswell!!!

    Good Luck, i'm sure you will do fine. Do you know how many marks you need to get the grade you want??? My teacher made an spreadsheet that worked it out but i'm not sure if different schools have done the same.
