Making Bluebook Accessible for High-Stakes Tests

Date & Time
Thursday, March 21, 2024 - 4:20 PM PDT  
Platinum 7  
In 2021, College Board launched Bluebook™ , an application for taking College Board tests, including digital AP exams and the Digital SAT Suite. We used the application’s launch to reimagine our entire approach to digital accessibility in the testing experience. For example, we set standards for how we structure and author image descriptions to make this content predictable and navigable and to foreground important information. For some questions, we built in-the-moment feedback so students using screen readers can be confident in their responses. Into the application itself, we built keyboard navigation and ARIA regions to help guide students through essential tasks like answering questions. This session will survey solutions and challenges College Board encountered when providing an accessible cross-platform user experience.
