Remember the guidelines where divided into different success criteria? Nice. Those success criteria are classified into 3 levels.
- Single-A (A): the lowest
- Double-A (AA): the medium
- Triple-A (AAA): the highest
So, once you have tested the success criteria, you can state the conformance of your webpage into 3 levels:
- Level Single-A (A): your webpage satisfies all the Single-A (A) success criteria.
- Level Double-A (AA): your webpage satisfies all the Single-A (A) and Double-A (AA) success criteria.
- Level Triple-A (AAA): your webpage satisfies all the Single-A (A), Double-A (AA) and Triple-A (AAA) success criteria.
