While it is our goal to create rigorous and accurate autograders, there are limitations to what we can check, and it is important to understand these limitations.  For certain exercises in Web Design, the autograders may not thoroughly test the student code, and teachers should make sure to review student submissions.

Autograders can only check the index.html file.

For exercises that include multiple files, only the index.html file is checked. This includes CSS and JavaScript code that is written within the <style> and <script>  tags. However, the autograders will not check an additional CSS or JavaScript file. It will also not check anything included in a second HTML page. In these cases, teachers can glance at the student submission to visually check that CSS elements are correct, or they can go to the additional CSS page and check the code itself.
