COIT 20268 – Responsive Web Design (RWD)
(Term 1 – 2017)
– Portfolio 1
– Practical Assessment 1
Background
Global Toys, is a sole proprietor business, specialising in selling toys. Their shop lot occupies
approximately one acre of floor space and is located in a metropolitan city. By most standards,
the shop is huge and customers have difficulty in finding their way around. The owner of the
business has contracted you to develop a website providing information about the shop. The
website is not an online ordering system. Instead, it is a website to provide more information
about the shop layout and the selection of toys it sells. You have been provided with the
following initial and technical specifications:
Memo: Website Requirements
From: Flying Hobbies, Senior Management
To : WIMP Engineering R&D Consultants
Specification
Design and develop a website. The idea is to provide information to
potential customers visiting Global Toys premises. The goal is to
allow potential customers to obtain an overview of the shop layout and
to obtain details of the selection of toys offered by the shop.
Resources
Resources such as images and details of opening hours can be found in
ProResource.zip. The content of the ZIP file is:
1. Three folders named
Board_Games, Lego_Models and RC_Toys. Each
folder contains images relating to the different type of toys as
indicated by the folder names.
2. A text file
Toy_List.txt lists the proper names of the specific
toys corresponding to each of the image within each folder. You need
to use the proper names as the formal description of the toys on your
website.
3. A text file
Shop_Hours.txt containing the business and opening
hours of the shop.
4.
Logo.png – an image of the logo of the shop.
5.
Floor_Plan.jpg – an image of the shop’s floor plan.
General Requirements
The owner of Global Toys insists that the following requirements must
be adhered to:

2
1. Each webpage of the website must display the shop logo. You can
edit this image, but the font style, type and colour must remain as in
the original image.
2. Do not change the proper names of the toys. Do not rename the
filenames of any of the images.
3. All images of each toy must be presented to potential customers.
This can be done within one webpage or distributed across several web
pages. The idea is to ensure that potential customers are made aware
of the complete selection of toys the shop carries.
4. The images are to be used as it is. You can resize the images
retaining the original aspect ratio, but do not crop or edit (e.g. recolour, touch up, sharpen, etc.) or rename the images in any way.
5. Generate a separate page providing the opening and business hours.
The details are found in the
Shop_Hours.txt file.
6. Text description for each item is not provided. You can provide
your own ‘dummy’ text (i.e. lorem ipsum) to demonstrate the
functionality of your web page design.
Example of Users Interacting with the Website
The visitor to the website will be greeted by a welcome message and
the following layout of the floor plan of the store. The visitor
clicks on any of the display sections (circles). It should bring up
details of the display sections with relevant categories with details
of the items. The visitor clicks on any of the images of the items to
obtain further information on that image. In addition, if the visitor
selects an option to display business hours, a separate page should
appear to provide this information. Note that this is the basic
requirement, it is up to you to implement other details e.g.
instructions, navigational control, etc.
What to Submit
On the specified due date, you are to submit two assessment items:
(1) Portfolio 1, and
(2) Practical Assessment 1.

What You Need to Do
At the end of each week, you will complete a different section of the given project as specified
in Background section above. Each of the weekly Individual Case Project, found at the end of
each chapter, will contribute progressively toward the completion of the given website project.
Each weekly Individual Case Project corresponds with the textbook chapters from each week’s
lesson plan. You are to document and report on each of these weekly Individual Case Project,
cumulating in a final portfolio (i.e. Portfolio 1). Portfolio 1 should be submitted along with
Practical Assessment 1.

Weekly Individual Case Project Marks
Portfolio 1.1 (Chapter 1)
Write up the following project proposal :
Site title—Specify the working title for the site.
Developer—Identify yourself.
Rationale or focus—Explain the content and goals of the site.
Planning the Site:
Main elements outline—Describe the main features of the site.
Content—Estimate the number of individual web pages.
Target audience—Describe the typical audience for the site.
Design considerations—List the design goals for the site.
Limiting factors—Identify the technical or audience factors that could
limit the design goals of the site.
*At this stage, your proposal and planning is primarily a draft. You will have
a chance to modify the proposal and supplement the design details at
different phases of the project.

Portfolio 1.2 (Chapter 2)
Visualize the page design for your site by sketching a number of page layouts
for different information levels of the site. For example, sketch the main
page, a secondary page, and a content page. You do not have to be
concerned with the exact look of the elements, but be prepared to indicate
the main components of the pages, such as headings, navigation cues, link
sets, text areas, and so on.
Start to organize your site. Create a visual diagram that indicates the main
page, section pages, content pages, and so on. Indicate the links between the
pages. Indicate whether you will provide alternate navigation choices such as
a table of contents and site map.
* Your figures and sketches can be hand drawn on paper or created using a
drawing application. To submit hand drawn sketches, please scan or use a
digital camera to capture the originals.
1.5
Portfolio 1.3 (Chapter 3)
Write a site specification for the website project. Include as much
information as possible from the project proposal you completed at the end
of Portfolio 1.1. Make sure to include a mission statement. Determine how
you will measure the site’s success in meeting its goals. Include a description
of the intended audience. Describe how you will assess user satisfaction with
the site. Include technological issues that may influence the site’s
development or function.
Prepare a detailed flowchart for your site using the preliminary flowchart
you created at the end of Portfolio 1.2. Create a filename for each page,
using a consistent naming standard. Indicate all links between pages. Write a
short summary that describes the flowchart. Describe why you chose the
particular structure, how it suits your content, and how it benefits the user.
Use the page layouts you sketched in Portfolio 1.2 to create the wireframes.
1.5
Portfolio 1.4 (Chapter 4)
Revisit your project proposal and the site specifications you created in
Portfolio 1.1. How will you implement Cascading Style Sheets (CSS3) into
your project web site? In the next few weeks, you will learn how to control
typography, white space, borders, colors, and backgrounds with CSS3. Think
1.5

6

about each of these style characteristics and how you will apply them to your
page designs. In addition, make a list of possible class names you might use
to identify your content.
For example, consider using class names for the following page
characteristics, as well as creating some of your own:
Body copy
Header (possibly different levels)
Footer
Portfolio 1.5 (Chapter 5)
Design the type hierarchy for your web site. Create a type specification
HTML5 page that shows examples of the different typefaces and sizes and
how they will be used. This can be a mock-up page that uses generic content
but demonstrates the overall typographic scheme. Consider the following
questions:
• What will be the typefaces and styles for the body type and headings?
• How many levels of headings are necessary?
• What are the different weights and sizes of the headings?
• How will text be emphasized?
• Will hypertext links be standard or custom colors?
• How will you ensure the legibility and readability of your text?
• What will your line length be?
1.5
Portfolio 1.6 (Chapter 6)
Create the box model conventions for your web site. Build on the
typographic classes you created in Portfolio 1.5 . Think about the different
spacing requirements for your content, and decide how the legibility can be
enhanced using the box properties. Add this information to the type
specification HTML page that shows examples of the different typefaces and
sizes and how they will be used. Decide on margins, padding, and borders,
and select the elements that will benefit from their use. Create before-and
after sample HTML5 pages that reflect the enhanced design.
Design your website to fit a desktop computer display for an approximate
screen resolution between 1024×768 to 1280×1024.

Assessment details for: Practical Assessment 1 (20 marks).
What You Need to Do
To complete the given project specified in the Background section above, you are to create a
prototype of a stand-alone website for a
desktop computer. Design your website to be
rendered by a web browser to fit a desktop computer display between 1024×768 to 1280×1024
pixels. The site must have pages that display at least three levels of information. The contents
and resources have been provided in the above specification. The website will be assessed for
cohesiveness, accessibility, design and development effort.
The prototype stand-alone website should be created progressively as specified by each week’s
activities. These activities are to be documented and reported in Portfolio 1. It is
understandable that by the end of Portfolio 1, there are specific techniques or skills that remain
to be presented and taught to you. For all purpose and intention of Practical Assessment 1,
your knowledge up to this point will be sufficient for you to complete a prototype stand-alone
website for a
desktop computer. You will be marked according to your knowledge
demonstrated at this point. You will not be penalised for not demonstrating techniques that
have not been presented or taught to you by the end of Portfolio 1 activities.
Use any combination of HTML5 and CSS3 to develop this website. Remember to indicate which
desktop browser (i.e. IE, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, etc.) you are targeting as the main working
platform. Do not use Rapid Application Prototyping (RAD) tools or any other type of scripting
languages or services, e.g. Python, Lua, AJAX, Dreamweaver, etc. You are required to
demonstrate your knowledge of HTML5 and CSS3 independently and without the assistance of
automated development and visual design tools. Your website should be developed to be
capable of launching directly from localised desktop computers. That is, the
landing page (i.e.
the first page or top page) of your website can be launched by calling or opening
main.html or
index.html directly from within a web browser. No web server is required for Practical
Assessment 1 and 2.
What to Submit
Submit one ZIP file folder to your Moodle course site online submission portal for this course.
Please name this ZIP folder as PRACASSN_1.ZIP. This ZIP folder should contain the following:
All necessary files, images, scripts, coding and resources should reside in a single main folder. It
is up to you to organise the files and sub-folders within the main folder. Ensure that all your

9
scripts and coding is stand-alone and portable. That is, your marker or instructor should be able
to run your scripts from the type of browser you have specified by clicking on the
main.html
or index.html startup file. The web browser you specified should render your markup and
scripts without problems.
Assessment Criteria
The following criteria will be used to assess your assignment:

Criteria Marks
Overall functionality. Web pages function as intended. 5
The prototype sufficiently demonstrates the main features of
the initial design and its intended purpose.
5
Quality of HTML5 and CSS3 coding techniques. Demonstrates
proficiency in HTML5 and CSS3.
5
Website and associated webpage design corresponds closely
to the work reported in Portfolio 1. Conversely, the details
presented in Portfolio 1 should be supportive of the prototype
implementation as demonstrated in Practical Assessment 1.
3
Inline comments, filename convention and overall file and
folder structure.

Marker’s Guideline
To obtain 76-100% of the marks allocated for a specific section of the assessment, the
student’s work is expected to demonstrate a
very high level of knowledge and
understanding of concepts, facts and procedures, and application of knowledge within the
scope of the course.
To obtain 51-75% of the marks allocated for a specific section of the assessment, the
student’s work typically demonstrate a
high level of knowledge and understanding of
concepts, facts and procedures, and application of knowledge within the scope of the
course.
To obtain 26-50% of the marks allocated for a specific section of the assessment, the
student’s work typically demonstrate a
sound level of knowledge and understanding of
concepts, facts and procedures, and application of knowledge within the scope of the
course.
To obtain 1-25% of the marks allocated for a specific section of the assessment, the
student’s work typically demonstrate a
limited level of knowledge and understanding of
concepts, facts and procedures, and application of knowledge within the scope of the
course.
0 marks will be allocated for a specific section of the assessment, where an erroneous or no
attempt has been made by the student.
