You may use this page to generate an evaluation form for the User Agent Accessibility Guidelines (UAAG) 1.0. The evaluation form allows you to provide information about yourself, the user agent you are evaluating, and to rate how the user agent satisfies the checkpoints. The form also allows you to rate how the user agent satisfies very specific tests that are part of the draft UAAG 1.0 Test Suite.
Once you have generated a form, you may fill it out as part of evaluating a user agent. The evaluation form generates an XML representation of the evaluation, which can be saved, merged with other evaluations, and displayed as a report.
For instance, if you complete a partial evaluation and wish to return to it, or if you want to make changes to an existing evaluation, then:
This evaluation form does not save the data for you; it only generates the resulting XML.
The following buttons allow you to build a UAAG 1.0 user agent evaluation form that includes links to HTML 4.01 tests for some of the checkpoints.
Create a form for a new evaluation that includes links to HTML 4.01 tests:
Note: You can also use the preceding button to add HTML 4.01 tests to an existing report that does not include them.

Note: If you create an evaluation report using the above button and that evaluation report contains test information, that test information will not appear in the generated results.
This evaluation form generator has been developed by the User Agent Accessibility Guidelines Working Group (UAWG), as part of W3C's Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). This form invokes xslt transforms created by Matt May.
Each generated form allows you to rate the degree to which a checkpoint or checkpoint provision or test has been implemented. The ratings are hierarchical, although this is not enforced by the form:
The UAWG relies on additional scripts to issue warnings when the ratings are not consistent (e.g., when a checkpoint is rated one way and one of the provisions rated another). For convenience, it's possible to provide a rating at the checkpoint level and have it be "inherited" by all of the provisions. The "set all children" link sets a given checkpoint rating on all provisions, or a given provision rating on all related tests. The UAWG encourages people to provide an evaluation for each provision.
Beyond providing a rating for each checkpoint, provision, or test, you may include additional comments during an evaluation. These comments are saved, along with the ratings, and may be consulted later. Each "show comments" link opens a text area for comments (at each checkpoint, provision, or test). In this version of the form, there is currently no way to close a text area once it has been opened.
