Examples of Projects that Got an A

Listed below are links to some projects that got an "A" grade last year. When you compare these examples with each other, you will notice that the most important aspect of an “A” project is navigation. I do not want you handing in a so-called page-turner in which the only option is to page forward or back. Instead, I want to see thoughtful designs that give the user choices to navigate appropriately to different places in your project. You will see what I mean when you follow these links to student projects that earned an “A” last year.
