  • Department of Computer Science, Himachal Pradesh University, Shimla - 5, Himachal Pradesh, India


Objectives: The fast expansion of net applications will increase the essentiality to assess net application quantitatively. Recently certain valuable efforts like Website Quality Evaluation Method (Web-QEM) attempted to purposely evaluate the web application are entirely skewed, relying generally on expert’s opinions. In this paper, a quantitative assessment approach is elucidated to evaluate the features of the websites. Methods: The methodology is valuable in analytically evaluating the traits, sub-traits and features that influence product superiority. In this paper the website superiority metrics and means to compute the website interface has been proposed. The evaluation metrics has a framework of five quality characteristics: Functionality, Usability, Reliability, Presentation and Content. Findings: The home web page is exceedingly imperative in comparison to others; hence the estimation of the entire nature of the site is characterized by home web page. An outcome is additionally from 0 to 1, 0 speaks to low-class and 1 implies fabulous class. The prospective site quality measurements could be used as a site assessment system in order to assess functional sites and dispense superiority scores. Applications: This paper would act as a sort of blueprint highlighting the pathway and its elucidation, for evaluating a particular website. Eventually, a meticulous evaluation procedure is being illustrated by this paper.
