Pearson Assessments Accessibility Conformance Reports

The Information Technology Industry Council (ITI) is "the leading global reporting format for assisting buyers and sellers in identifying information and communications technology (ICT) products and services with accessibility features." They are the creators of the VPAT® (Voluntary Product Accessibility Template). VPATs are used as a source to create Accessibility Conformance Reports (ACR). The Accessibility Team for Assessments uses the latest versions of ITI VPATs to develop ACRs. ITI VPATs cover the following information and communications technology (ICT) accessibility standards: Section 508 (U.S.), EN 301 549 (EU), and W3C/WAI WCAG.
