The hw1 allocates 60 points for applicant functions design and "Up to 20 pts is reserved for good user interface design." If my design satisfies all requirements but are in simple appearance like the examples given for other parts of the application in the hw description, is that good enough?

The short answer is yes. This is not a graphics design class so a good UI design doesn't have to have lots of bells & whistles. The UI should be aesthetically pleasing though (i.e. it can't be too ugly), and it should be functional and user-friendly. Here are some common problems in bad UI design:

. Use text field for everything.

. Not redirecting the user to the right page after a form submission.

. Lack of navigation links/buttons, which forces the user to constantly use the browser back button.
