Student Taxonomy for Higher Education - Sample

Students need to perform many tasks as part of their post-secondary education and can encounter challenges or accessibility barriers with any one or set of these tasks. In theory, identifying and assessing the success or barriers encountered by a student will inform areas of needed intervention, including accommodations or campus design solutions. Two important strategic procedures have driven the student behavior analyses for this taxonomy development:concepts from industrial engineering task analysis and occupational therapy activity analysis. This taxonomy was the first iteration of what became ACES and then SCAN-IT (both of which are found on this website).

"Advancing employment opportunities and expectations for people with disabilities strengthens not only America's economy, but our moral fiber. It creates a more inclusive America, one where every person is recognized for his or her accomplishments — and that should be our goal not just on Labor Day but every day."

Assistant Secretary Kathy Martinez, Office of Disability Employment Policy, September 7, 2009
