2. Use consistent methods to evaluate how well a student understands what he or she is learning

What to Do:

  • Identify student’s consistent access and response mode.
  • Identify methods of assessment that allow the student to demonstrate progress toward mastery of task.
  • Define observable/measureable progress (what does progress look like?).
  • Determine frequency of assessment and data analysis.
  • Analyze data to modify instruction/strategies, if needed.

Things to Consider:

  • Have you considered whether the student’s preferred access mode may change between subject areas, e.g., Braille for reading/large print for math?
  • Are you allowing ample time for student to process questions and respond?
  • Does your assessment measure what you are trying to test?
  • Have you broken down the task into manageable and observable steps?
