[[#ProjDesc]]'''Project Description:'''\\
By creating and administering a usability test, I will analyze the functionality of islandwaves.tamucc.edu (the Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi student newspaper Web site). From the results of usability surveys, I will create a report complete with recommendations to present to the Editor-in-chief of the Island Waves.

[[#ProjPurpose]]'''Project Purpose:'''
The purpose of the usability test is to determine whether the Island Waves student newspaper Web site is easy to access for primary audience (university students), and if it , to make recommendations as to what could be improved.

[[#Audience]]'''Audience:'''\\
The Island Waves student newspaper Web site is viewed by several audiences:
*Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi students and faculty visit the Web site to view the Island Waves student newspaper online.
*In student newspaper competitions, newspaper Web sites (like islandwaves.tamucc.edu) are eligible for judging and awards.
*Alumni and locals visit the school newspaper Web site to get information about the university.

[[#FirstImp]]'''First Impressions:'''\\
My first impression of islandwaves.tamucc.edu was what made me choose to do this project. For a Web site that is meant to reflect the excitement and diversity of a student newspaper, I found it very simple and unappealing. A lot of the information was outdated, and there were several looping and dead links.
