ACES Taxonomy  (Research based)

The Accessible Campus Environment Survey (ACES) was developedas a tool designed to evaluate campus accessibility from a student perspective and covers a broad array of post-secondary student experiences. ACES was designed to be presented through the use of a software program called X-Fact, utilizing a scaling strategy known as Trichotomous Tailored Sub-branching Scaling (TTSS). It is presented here as an Excel chart with definitions of activities and scoring option.

"We cannot afford to let the issue of disabilities be simply an afterthought. We have a unique opportunity now, as industry pours billions of dollars into upgrading the communications infrastructure, to make sure that people with disabilities are not left behind. Now is the time. Accessibility of services and products for all Americans has got to be a design feature, not an add-on."

Chairman Kennard, Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Statement on Video Description, 11/18/99
