MA Web Design & Content Planning

User experience design

Assessed elements

This course includes 2 assessed elements; a 10 question, multiple-choice quiz and a written discussion guide. Details of these elements are given below. Each of the elements has a slightly different weighting and this is indicative of the degree of difficulty and/or the amount of work required.

Project details


The quiz is available on the course Moodle page. Please login to the student portal and find the course page on Moodle. You can repeat the quiz as many times as you like until it closes at the end of the day on (to be confirmed).

UX action plan

Write an action plan for researching and testing the design of an improved version of an existing website. Your research objective is to improve the usability of the website.

Full details will be provided closer to the start of the module.

Your action plan should be submitted as a .PDF file and uploaded to the course Moodle page. Use illustrations if appropriate. Remember, this is a guide, not an essay. Word count is not important but ensure that the document is easy to read and to navigate – it will be used in a real-world situation as a guide for a design team.
