Module 2: Checkpoint 7—Site utilities
|Conformance: Mandatory (Site map is desirable)|
The site utilities must be located in the top right corner of the page.
The site utilities must be displayed in this order:
Benefits of conformance
- Users are able to locate the site utilities regardless of the site being visited.
- Reduces cognitive load for users (no relearning).
Risks of non-conformance
- Users will take longer to find site utilities if located in a different area of the page.
- Increases cognitive load for users.
Incorrect implementation: ‘Home’ should not be included and ‘Help’ is missing.
