Usability Guidelines From MIT

The MIT Information Services and Technologies office provides an excellent starting point for anyone needing to test, evaluate, analyze or assess the effective usability/accessibility of a Web site. In one well organized page, all critical areas of usability and accessibility are covered through a simple guidelines table that can be used to collect and annotate information. The MIT usability guidelines include most of the critical factors to consider during a usability evaluation of a Web site though not all factors may apply to every Web site or online information system available out there. The areas covered by the MIT set includes: Navigation, Functionality, User Control, Language and Content,
Online Help and User Guides, System and User Feedback, Web Accessibility,
Consistency, Error Prevention and Correction, Architectural and Visual Clarity.
