Welcome to the webpages of the Unified Web Evaluation Methodology version 0.5 (UWEM0.5). This draft version of the methodology is the result of a joint effort by 24 European organisations in three European projects combined in a cluster to develop a Unified Web Evaluation Methodology. The methodology is based on the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 [WCAG10] and will be synchronised with the foreseen migration from WCAG 1.0 to WCAG 2.0 [WCAG20] in the near future. The UWEM0.5 offers an interpretation of the guidelines agreed among stakeholders within the projects.
This document is a draft and shall not be considered as an stable version. The purpose of the 0.5 version of UWEM is to provide a basis for evaluating the draft methodology from all the intended types of testing, including: user-, expert- and (semi-) automated testing of Web resources. This will be done inside the three projects, but also we seek and invite public review.
