This paper describes a small study examining students ability to evaluate the accessibility of a government website using heuristics. Twenty one students studying an undergraduate module in web development performed the evaluations. The results showed that despite their lack of experience all evaluators were able to perform the evaluation and identify at least one issue. Further studies will compare the effectiveness of the students with automated evaluators and examine any possible effect the order in which the heuristics are presented may have on the classification.
