  • How can I provide students with multiple options for demonstrating their learning and taking part in activities?
  • How can I give students an opportunity to include their own critical thought, research, and opinions in the assessments?
  • Which course assessments or aspects of course assessments, if any, may be challenging for:
      • Students with visual disabilities?
      • Students with auditory disabilities?
      • Students with cognitive disabilities?
      • Students with motor disabilities?
      • Students with English as a Second Language (ESL)?
  • What technology and/or resources needed for completion of assessments may pose accessibility challenges?
