A Technology Toolkit to support accessibility of formative e-assessment for disabled students
This paper illustrates how problems with accessibility and ease of use of electronic formative assessment tools can be overcome by the judicious use of assistive technologies and presentation modes to enhance teaching and learning for disabled students and those with specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia. Where formative assessments are used to enhance teaching and learning to meet the needs of students, it is important to work in an inclusive environment to support diverse personal preferences and skills. Positive responses to e-assessment can only be achieved if a toolkit of support and guidance is available to both students and developers.

Abstract

This paper illustrates how problems with accessibility and ease of use of electronic formative assessment tools can be overcome by the judicious use of assistive technologies and presentation modes to enhance teaching and learning for disabled students and those with specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia. Where formative assessments are used to enhance teaching and learning to meet the needs of students, it is important to work in an inclusive environment to support diverse personal preferences and skills. Positive responses to e-assessment can only be achieved if a toolkit of support and guidance is available to both students and developers.
