Accessibility Guidance for Assessment


To support our mission and ensure our assessment products are accessible to all learners, we have chosen to align our accessibility guidance and recommendations to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

The information presented on this site is aligned with the WCAG Success Criteria, recommended for Pearson Assessment products. Where possible, we have added assessment considerations.

On this site you will find:

  • Guidelines defined for four accessibility principles
  • Simplified, direct questions
  • Explanations of what to do and why to do it
  • Resources to help get you started
  • Alignment and reference to the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines

Future content will include:

  • Technical resources
  • Testing tools
  • Additional external resources
