- This research study assesses the online content presented on AgrAbility project websites. The population for this study included the National AgrAbility Project (NAP) and the State and Regional Projects (SRAPs) associated with AgrAbility. The population was further broken down into two groups: project websites and project webmasters. A webmaster is the person who maintains a particular website. The study design was a combination of quantitative content analysis and descriptive survey research. The content analysis determined the types of content presented, image categories, messaging appeals, frames and usability elements used on AgrAbility project websites. Secondary data from webmaster surveys revealed two significant correlations between website content and survey responses. The aim of the study was to determine what makes AgrAbility project websites usable and effective. The data collected from the study was used to recommend and create a template of what a successful AgrAbility project website could look like. Findings from this research may influence creating cohesive and usable content to better serve AgrAbility clients and team members. All websites and webmaster responses were included in the study because the population was small. The small population of AgrAbility projects indicates that results are not generalizable to the public, only to AgrAbility projects and interested publics.
