  • Task Difficulty Tasks are rated for difficulty. Within each phase task table look for 1, 2, or 3, with 1 being the least difficult and 3 being the most difficult.
  • Highlight important and relevant items. Long lists of every website or every publication would bury, rather than highlight, what's important.
  • Tell readers what to expect when they follow a link or search a suggested record.
  • Balance content with these four factors in mind:

b. Clarity. Make sure everyone understands your meaning and the purpose of your words.
