Code Checklist

Check for console.log() commands in the javaScript code.

  • These can cause trouble with IE browsers because the function console.log() is undefined unless the Developer frame is open in the browser. The code will run fine while you are checking it (with the developer frame open) and then crash silently when someone else uses it.
  • For production code these should be commented out, or turned on only by an if (debug) {} type statement.

Accessibility Checklist

  • Check pages with an accessibility validator (like WAVE).
    • It should mostly validate on student pages with only a few issues.
    • There will be some errors, in particular PG problems and instructor pages.
  • Visit pages and check contrast. (Use something like Juicy Studio Colour Contrast Analyzer with the Luminosity Contrast Ratio option.) Contrasts should all pass AA or better.
  • Visit pages and use tab to navigate. In particular you should be able to navigate easily using only tab and the enter button.
