Evaluate Two Internet Websites On 
Disabilities on Physical/Health Impairments

Description of the Signature Assignment:

Students will review two websites that provide information/advocacy for individuals with 
disabilities. The assignment is intended to familiarize students with the types and importance of 
information and resources concerning individuals with disabilities available to advocates, 
families, public agencies, and the general public. Students will evaluate the credibility, content, 
design/navigability, and accessibility of the websites as well as recommendations for 
improvement. 

Directions for Students:

Students will use the questions provided in the syllabus to evaluate the key areas of each 
website (e.g., credibility, content, design/navigability, accessibility, recommendations). 
Students will submit the assignment in narrative format. The review of each website should be 
no longer than 2 pages, so it should be 3-4 pages total for both websites, double-spaced, and should adhere to APA (6th ed) format. Submit 
final assignment as a single Word document.
1) Credibility
• Who is the creator of the website (in other words, who wrote the content or posted the 
text made available to the reader)? What is his/her (their) background, history, and/or 
philosophy? (use your own words here) 
• Are the developers of the site credible? 
• How often is the site updated? 
• Are sources of information provided? 
• What are the stated and unstated goals and purposes of the site? 
• Does the site have bias or a hidden agenda? 
• Does the site present information and situations related to the real-life experiences of 
students?
2) Content
• Is the content current, accurate, appropriate and multicultural? 
• Is the content presented in an understandable, open, multicultural, and objective 
manner? 
• Are important issues presented realistically? 
• Does the site use inclusive and individuals-first language?

• Is the site easy to use and navigate? 
• Are sections and resource links labeled? 
• Are graphics and images inclusive, accurate, and current? 
• Does the site contain motivating, thoughtful, relevant, and differentiated learning 
activities?
4) Individuals with Disabilities
• Is the site usable by individuals with disabilities? 
• Does the site promote sensitivity and inclusion, and avoid pitying and protective 
responses? 
• Does the site foster an understanding of the importance of independence, dignity, and 
self-determination? 
• Are the varied experiences, perceptions, and contributions of individuals with 
disabilities depicted? 
• Does the site help students understand that individuals have more similarities than 
differences?
5) Recommendations for improvement 
• What suggestion of services you would offer if you were a contributing author, for 
example?

(different organization of content, perhaps?)
