Sampling Method Statement

Sampling Method 

We followed guidance from the WCAG Evaluation Methodology in order to select a representative sample of each of the websites and platforms tested as part of our accessibility audit. 

We sampled all pages which 

  • All common webpages which are linked to from the main navigation menus. 
  • An page exemplyfying each common type of page layout. 
  • All pages related to essential functionality of the website.  
  • Pages which had third party content embedded. 

We then took a random sample by numbering each page on the sitemap, and using a random number generator to select a number of random pages equivalent to 10% of the structured sample.
