Website Grades Were Sent to Offices Today
This afternoon, we sent e-mails to Chiefs of Staff and Staff Directors notifying them of their office's website grade in the 111th Congress evaluations. Don't worry — these grades are confidential and are not provided to anyone but the office itself.
Naturally, we've been fielding numerous calls and e-mails from staff all over the Hill. Some are pleasantly surprised by their performance — others not so much.
But no matter where you fall on the grade spectrum, we have some good news for everyone:
- There is plenty of time to improve your site before the 112th Congress evaluations.
- Anyone, and we mean ANYONE, can win a Mouse Award by following the lead of the best sites.
- And, for those offices wanting to know more than their overall score, you can purchase detailed Website Report Cards that provide grades for each of the major categories that sites were evaluated on.
We hope that you receive this information in the spirit it's given. Our mission is to help you communicate more effectively online. Just don't shoot the messenger.
