  2. A Computer-Assisted Test for Accessible Computer-Assisted Assessment Gill Harrison and John Gray Innovation North: Faculty of Information and Technology Leeds Metropolitan University International CAA Conference 2006

  3. Question 1 AMD (age-related macular degeneration) is a condition in which: (a) peripheral vision is lost (b) central vision is lost (c) all vision is reduced International CAA Conference 2006

  4. Question 1 AMD (age-related macular degeneration) is a condition in which: (a) peripheral vision is lost (b) central vision is lost (c) all vision is reduced International CAA Conference 2006

  5. Introduction - What? Computer-Assisted test for Staff Development to increase awareness of disability in relation to technology generally and CAA in particular including some simulation of experience of people with impairments International CAA Conference 2006

  6. Why? With respect to the DDA, 1995 and SENDA, 2001, and the responsibilities now placed on Higher Education institutions: (a) I am confident that I am fully aware of all these matters (b) I know something about them but think I should know more (c) I realise that I don’t know nearly enough about all of this International CAA Conference 2006

  7. But why use CAA? experience of impairment short, interactive, fun! International CAA Conference 2006

  8. Under what umbrella? CETL ALiC (Active Learning in Computing) Durham, Newcastle, Leeds, Leeds Met at Leeds Met John Gray: Lead Co-ordinator Jakki Sheridan-Ross: Research Officer Gill Harrison: Teacher Fellow Very wide brief, including disability and Staff Development International CAA Conference 2006

  9. How? Decide strategy TechDis Other sources Disability Services Manager at Leeds Met International CAA Conference 2006

  10. How? What to display Display: Question Alternative (understandable) form Guidance about how to display the alternative form, and about the impairment illustrated Advice and references International CAA Conference 2006

  11. How? Grouping Four areas: ·visual impairment ·hearing impairment ·physical/motor impairment ·cognitive/learning impairment International CAA Conference 2006

  12. I have an idea about a colour-blindness question I’m going to draw some storyboards What about using BSL in a question? I’ll generate HTML pages How? International CAA Conference 2006

  13. Example questions..... International CAA Conference 2006

  14. Analysis of questions For each: which of the four areas does it fall into? specific impairment addressed by the question’s form? specific impairment addressed by the content? alternative format needed (an escape route)? relates to disability in relation to technology generally or CAA specifically? International CAA Conference 2006

  15. First run June 13th 2006 International CAA Conference 2006

  16. Conclusion and future work IMPROVEMENTS Feedback from staff taking the test Input from disabled students? International CAA Conference 2006

  17. Conclusion and future work Issues around context - undeclared impairments? International CAA Conference 2006

  18. Conclusion and future work Other potential areas of use? “roadshows” FE or schools International CAA Conference 2006

  19. Conclusion What they said... International CAA Conference 2006
