BALL, S., 2007. Accessibility in e-assessment. IN: Khandia, F. (ed.). 11th CAA International Computer Assisted Conference: Proceedings of the Conference on 10th & 11th July 2007 at Loughborough University, Loughborough, pp. 21-33.
E-Assessment offers many opportunities to broaden the range of tools at the
assessor's disposal and thereby improve the overall accessibility of the
assessment experience. In 2006 TechDis commissioned a report, produced by
Edexcel, on the state of guidance on accessibility at the various stages of the
assessment process - question design, construction of delivery software and so
on. The findings from this report will be briefly presented, and discussion with
participants will be held to ascertain priority areas for the development of
guidance for the sector.
