A UDL Perspective on Assessment

Learn about assessments using UDL's inclusive principles and guidelines.

About

This is an introduction to a series of videos developed to help educators as they design assessments. While tradition tests and diagnostics tend to have a "one-size-fits-all" approach to measuring knowledge and skills, universally designed assessments identify and eliminate unintended and/or irrelevant barriers in the measurement itself. By designing flexible means of assessment, educators can get a more accurate reflection of what individuals learners know and can do. A video series is highlighted that focuses on the integral nature of assessments within instruction.

About

"New discoveries about the workings of the learning brain have converged with advancements in educational technology to finally make possible the kinds of flexible learning environments that students need to prepare for their future. According to the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework, flexibility is key because it allows educators to accommodate their students’ natural variability in learning preferences."

"While UDL is first and foremost about implementing a flexible pedagogy, technology can help by making the kind of personalized learning envisioned under UDL a reality. Read on to find out about a number of free and low-cost UDL-aligned apps and websites that you can use to make learning environments more flexible and personalized. Or, if you prefer to view the list visually, take a look at our Pinterest board."

Technology and Universal Design for Learning

Set of recommendations for using technology tools to support the principles of Universal Design for Learning when designing learning experiences.

About

Technology and ​Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

You’ve probably seen the lists of technology tools you can use in your classroom.  They can be mind-boggling! The question is what can you do with the tools to use them meaningfully for teaching and learning? Start by looking at the core features of the tool and considering its fit for your task.

Resist the urge to use tech tools just for the sake of the tool, especially if it is a new technology for students.

  • Less can be more!  You don’t need a huge range of different tools.
  • Start with tools you and the students are already familiar with: there are probably some technology tools, apps, or platforms you’ve used in class that can be useful.
  • Technology can be a helpful tool for closed schools, but focus on teaching and learning and maintaining relationships, not just what tech to use (low tech might be better!).
  • Consider what you want to accomplish and how you can do that remotely/online.
