Delivering Accessible Online Math Assessments for Students with Visual Impairments
This session presents recent advances in software for braille math that help close the gap in building equitable assessment systems, as demonstrated by research studies with visually impaired students. We discuss the impact of braille standards on the cost of delivering online math assessments, and demonstrate an accessible equation editor that supports real-time, two-way translations between braille math notation and the printed math notation used by sighted students.
Presenter: Sam Dooley, Dan Brown, Susan Osterhaus
