Lessons Learned in Interactive Assessment Accessibility

Date & Time
Friday, March 22, 2024 - 10:20 AM PDT  
Orange County 3-4  
The unique features of assessments, such as construct and measurement, sometimes pose challenges when applying the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines to digital test content. Test content providers sometimes need to apply the accessibility guidelines in innovative ways, often going above and beyond mere WCAG compliance. This session will highlight lessons learned from the Accessibility Team at Educational Testing Service (ETS) and how they approach accessible assessment. They will provide in-depth examples of accessible design such as: implementing drag-and-drop functionality with a single pointer interaction, making radio buttons de-selectable, creating accessible sentence/paragraph toggle features, and utilizing custom regions in assessments. The team will go beyond the basics, offering innovative ideas to inspire designers and developers in crafting accessible assessments. This session is designed for anyone involved in creating digital assessments or interested in advancing their knowledge of digital accessibility in assessments. Join us for an enlightening discussion on ensuring evaluation platforms are inclusive and equitable for all users.
