Access Beyond the Assessment: Accessibility for all Aspects of Digital Testing
By Thomas Hoffmann, Director of Product Strategy & Solutions at Open Assessment Technologies

Accessibility has long been a challenge in the assessment industry. With the recent uptick in online learning and assessment this year, it’s crucial that we rise to meet this challenge. It’s taken longer than many of us hoped, but online assessment platforms are finally taking accessibility seriously, and many vendors are openly boasting about their accessibility compliance and features. However, accessibility for tests isn’t only applicable to the test itself. Assessment programs need to dig a little deeper and think through the entire chain of access to all of the aspects of taking a test.

In this lightning talk, we dive into providing access for the whole assessment process, including what this looks like for test-takers, agents and test creators. We also discuss the critical IMS learning standards that enable accessibility beyond the assessment for all aspects of digital testing.
