Category: Other Events


When it comes to supporting your students and campus work environments, colleges and universities have led the charge in providing equitable access to educational opportunities and resources to enable success. Generally speaking, accessibility can be considered a prerequisite to validity, with regards to testing, for instance, where a test score interpretation is justifiable for a particular purpose and supported by evidence and theory (Roelofs, 2019). Having access means you as a learner have available the foundational elements and resources to support your learning and development, preparation, and guidance to be assessed fairly on content, to receive feedback that helps them to improve, and to use intervention materials to become successful.
