This is a short written task is designed to following an introductory few lesson on HTML.
The 15 minute, 15 mark homework sheet has four pages which use basic HTML tags to encourage students to learn the skill of finding errors in code.
Question 1 shows a html file containing 10 deliberate errors. Students have to identify the position of each error and write in a correction.
Question 2 consists of five similar problems. Students are shown a web page in a browser, each of which are not displaying as intended. Students told how the web page should have looked and have to identify what error may have been made in the code that would cause each page to display as shown. Question 2 may be used to generate lots of good discussion as often there may be several possible answers.
This could easily be used as class written work or for staff absence cover.
The download includes the original HTML files created while writing the questions. These may be used for demonstration, discussion or as part of your HTML course.
