An evaluation was conducted on the IPS Corporation website using two primary methods; scenario evaluation and heuristic inspection. Scenario-based evaluation looks at domain specific items from the viewpoint of a stakeholder. Heuristic inspection looks at the broader scope of issues that can come from the viewpoint of the stakeholder, but also looks at independent factors of overall usability. Reference the appendix for a complete list of stakeholders, scenarios and heuristics used in the evaluation of the IPS Corporation website.

Throughout the site the user notices various cues for hyperlink identification. This may
be confusing for the user, causing additional page scanning and a decrease in the efficiency
and utility of the website

Examples:

This is a representation IPS websites main homepage. Above the IPS logo one will
notice that the top links are bolded and larger than any other links on the page. One may
also observer there is no text action or cue that those are links (i.e. no dynamic underlining,
text highlighting, etc.). Further, sub navigation does contain background highlighting.
Navigation of topics in the body are bolded which is inconsistent of the secondary
navigation and do not provide any dynamic cues for users.
