Explore online student assessment through the lens of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). Students with disability-related barriers deserve equity in all exams and course assessments. Yet even our best accommodation efforts can fall short of full inclusion. Rather than retrofitting individual solutions to common assessment barriers, UDL offers a framework that maximizes student learning and empowers students with disabilities to show what they know. Shift into a UDL mindset, and learn to build effective online assessments that are true to your essential objectives! We’ll cover popular assessment tools, consider when assessments are true measurements rather than barriers in and of themselves, and create an achievable action plan that you can use in your courses right now. Register for UDL and Effective Online Assessment.
