0.0HomeGeneral does not scale as window scales, style is outdated and does not match UCD Website colors. can't distinguish between different boxes. need to box in clickable links. need to organize according to topic concisely.fix issues from comment section.
0.1HomeQuick Links in a random location, titles of quick links are not obvious, repeated links from parts of navigation bar while other links are only shown under quick linksGet rid of quick links and put those links under its appropriate tab. the main page should be centered arround attracting interest.
0.2HomeTitle / Logo up too much of the upper half of website. Chunky and not seamless. image logo is weird font and doesn't match UCD logo font or style. needs to be smaller and scale when window screen scales. The coloring and font should match UCDavis's main website.
0.3HomeNavigation Bar UI map/login links seem out of place. if its important it should have its own tabthis does not seem necessary. Have the map, UCD website links under 'other resources' instead of on the home page. or have it at the bottom rivet.
0.4HomeSearch bar slow search. filters do not make sense. if there will be filters should have advanced option. fix the issues from comments section. get rid of filter or have an advanced options filter. engine needs to be faster
0.5HomeSocial Media media logo looks discolored, takes up too much space. actual content is out of date. have the logo encircled. have at bottom of website or top of website. upate content. get more followers. get a blog. IDK how necessary a twitter or instagram is for the UWP department right now. The blog can feature up and coming writers at UCD or articles from professors.
0.6HomeContacts be at bottom of page instead of at top. need to add hours of operation of officechange to be at the bottom of website, add hours of operation to contact
0.7HomeImages images, some seem random like the australia trip picIf scroll rivet is there, distinguish those arrows so that all images for events/topics can be shown there and people know that you can scroll. place an outer border box so as to distinguish b/w white background of website and the scrolling box
1.0AboutAbout content and there are links to important subjects.the formatting of the page could be better. the main points could be in bold or bigger font to emphasize them
1.1AboutContact Information/Directions basic informationcould give an email as well as phone number. define whose phone number is listed. also the directions could be written better
1.2AboutPosition Announcements link that is expiredthe link is clickable but its expired and should be taken off the page, this also shows that the website should be updated more often
1.3AboutProgram History long, too much unnecessary stuff nobody cares about, spacing isnt right, also content grammar could be improved
1.4AboutProgram History Document Archive for dayscould give a description of whats listed, or a brief comment on the top, also give more information as to what the audience is looking at
2.0AcademicsCourse Schedules of undergrad and grad courses with links to different courses and course requirements, and pdfs of 2017-2018 quarter schedulesDon't need multiple links to the same pages in one short paragraph, could have one of each instead
2.0.1Course SchedulesUpper Division (link: "undergraduate") page 2.1.4, but tabs to "Writing in the Disciplines" sectionSee 2.1.4. shouldn't tab down to "writing in the disciplines." Comes from a hyperlink on "undergraduate," when upper div courses aren't only UWP courses for undergrads - misleading
2.0.2Course SchedulesGraduate Courses (link: "graduate") as 2.1.6See 2.1.6
2.0.3Course Schedules(link: "lower division courses") not foundPage not found, need to have a page if there's a link

2.0.5Course SchedulesUpper Division (link: "writing in the disciplines courses") page 2.1.4See 2.1.4. if the link for 2.0.3 tabs down, this should too, not 2.0.1

2.1.1Course DescriptionsEnglish as a Second Language of ESL courses with course number and title broken down into "English as a Second Language" and subheader for "ESL Graduate Courses." Each course number is link to page of course descriptionCould have a subheader for undergraduate ESL courses. pages of of full course descriptions need consistent formatting - spacing and font size for course titles not consistent across all pages

2.2AcademicsInternships of different types of internship opportunities available throught the UWP department and through outside employers. Contact information for internship coordinatorsUnder "Professional Writing Interns," process for requesting credit could be clearer with additional indenting for sub-bullets. Section 4 has sub-bullets 5.1 and 5.2 instead of 4.1 and 4.2 - need to be consistent
2.3AcademicsStudent Learning Objectives of student learning objectives of courses in UWP, also breakdown of objectives in lower div, upper div, and professional writing minorNo objectives listed for graduate courses, so could include a section for this or specify that this section is for undergrads
2.4AcademicsProfessional Writing Minor (link: "Writing Minor") of purpose of writing minor, what students can gain from it. Link to study abroad opportunity, link to facebook, and current contact info for advisors and internship coordinatorStudy abroad info is out of date - contains a link to a form for UWP International Education Award Application 2016. Should keep documents and study abroad information up to date
2.4.1Writing MinorRequirements requirements for writing minor, including links to most courses offered through the minorSome links go to course descriptions within UWP website or course catalog. However, some go to other departments' websites and several of these links go to pages that don't exist. Some links within to course descriptions on UWP website say "page not found." Need to have consistent course descriptions within department website with working links and accurate links to external departments' course descriptions
2.4.2Writing MinorInternship in Writing of information about internships in writing. Breakdown for "Process for Locating and Applying for an Internship," "Internship Forms" with links to documents, "Information for Employers and Site Supervisors," and "Site Supervisor Forms" Under "Process for Locating and Applying for an Internship," process for requesting credit could be clearer with additional indenting for sub-bullets. Section 4 has sub-bullets 5.1 and 5.2 instead of 4.1 and 4.2 - need to be consistent. Link for "site supervisor form" in Secton 5 takes you to top of current page - unclear of where to go next unless you scroll down to "Site Supervisor Forms" link - could make link go to bottom of the page where the form link is

2.5AcademicsCourse Requirements (link: "Writing, Rhetoric, and Composition Studies (WRaCS DE) Graduate Courses") you to WRaCS website. List of course requirements for WRaCS DE. Has course numbers and titles, which are links to full course descriptionsSome pages for course descriptions take you to UCD course catalog site's description, some are within UWP dept website. could make this consistent
3.0PeoplePeople text, just an empty page with links on the side barEither make the head link unclickable or add content related to people
40 of everyone in the department with links to each person's own internal pageSome text is hard to read. Would be better to add navigation to jump to specific groups of people since the list is long
3.2PeopleFaculty pictures and office hours of all facultySeems very similar to Directory and faculty administrators. Is there a way to condense all of these categories into one complete one? Also not all faculty has a picture which would be nice to have
3.3PeopleFaculty Administrators list of faculty administratorssee below
3.4PeopleGraduate Student Instructors list of current grad studentsAgain seems like this should be a sub-directory of Directory
3.5PeoplePhD Students to a page containing studentsThis links to an another department's page which can be confusing for the user. Also each page that contains people seems to have a different layout each time
3.6PeopleStaff list of staff Again this is similar to directory and is like a sub-directory page. Would be better if moved to directory page
3.7PeopleCommittee List document of the comittee listThis would be better served as a webpage that has the info and a downloadable link to the pdf along with it. Also this information should be kept up to date
3.8PeopleOffice Hours hours of all the teachers that offer themSince this can already be found through the directory, is this necessary?
4.0PublicationsPublications introduction about two publications of UCDFirst page is fine
4.1PublicationsPrized Writinghttp://prizedwriting.ucdavis.eduThe picture shown on first page is too distracted but not looks like significance enough. The most recent archive is 2016, might need to upated it, and consider either zoom in the picture on first page or change it.
4.2PublicationsWrting on the edgehttp://woejournal.ucdavis.eduThe sidebar under WOE page is functional but confused at the first timeUnder sidebar better with a more words to show the purpose of each section.
