  1. Does this project adhere to best coding practices? Is it well formatted and tidy?

  2. Is the HTML structure convoluted and unnecessarily nested? Are container elements used in a way that enhance overall page structure? In other words, does the student effectively use container elements to create a coherent structure without venturing into divitis territory?

  3. Does the stylesheet make good use of the cascade and classes to avoid redundancy in the CSS?

  4. Can the CSS or HTML be simplified?

  5. Are selectors too long (say greater than three elements) and does the student try to keep CSS specificity low?

  6. Are the relative paths correct?

  7. Are semantic tags being used correctly? Are deprecated tags being used?

  8. Are concise but descriptive alt attributes being used?

  9. Are semantic class names being used?


Note: You can edit this post, like a wiki, to help keep things organized and add resources and other information you want to share with others.

I edited the OP with a link to my forum post if anyway is interested in leaving some feedback I’d appreciate it!


Grad school is overwhelming but I’ve been trying to keep up by doing pretty basic projects to make sure i’m at least passing all the tests. Here’s my current version of a portfolio page

Added mines to the list above, still doing some tweaks here and there but fairly happy with it so far.
