I am working on how to baseline Web Site Evaluation Standards. However, I don't know whether there are specific areas where these standards are applicable. But some SME's suggest rating certain specifications such as Functionality, Usability, Performance, Security or more would help in stating the standards.
At this moment it is difficult to find any evidence or supporting documents which will define on how to rate the above parameters and baseline it as a standard for web-site evaluation. Any standard template or document would be helpful.
This is for the World Wide Web Consortium. They basically set standards for the web, so they'll be the best place to start looking for any sort of standards related to the physical website and it's interface.
