Inclusive assessment for students with disability

With central exams approaching, ACU’s Access and Disability Service and The Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training (ADCET) are excited to offer a free webinar on Tuesday 13 June on reasonable adjustments and how staff can facilitate inclusion through assessment design.

Educational institutions are legally required to ensure their assessments are not discriminatory, hence adjustments are implemented for students with disabilities. However, these students still report difficulties with exams, and some avoid them altogether (Grimes et al., 2021).

Substantial changes to exams in higher education occurred during the COVID pandemic. A research grant from the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education explored how examination arrangements in higher education impacted on students’ experiences of inclusion.

In this presentation, Dr Joanna Tai, Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Research in Assessment and Digital Learning (CRADLE) at Deakin University, will present findings from this research and will share ways to improve inclusion in exams.

Academic staff are welcome to refer students to ACU’s Access and Disability Service by providing the student with our contact details.

Webinar date: Tuesday 13 June, 1.00pm–2.00pm
