Technology Assisted Reading Assessments
This poster reports on three studies conducted by staff at the National Center on Educational Outcomes and Institute on Community Integration. Study 1 was a national survey of Teachers of Students with Visual Impairments (TVIs) asking about approaches to teaching reading with technology. Study 2 was an in-depth interview with TVIs that provided information on models for technology-assisted reading assessments for students with visual impairments. Study 3 was an observational interview of students using assistive technology platforms for reading tasks. All three studies provide evidence of the current state of assistive technology use in schools for students with visual impairments. Findings and implications will be used in the development of assessments for accountability.
