A good resource for print tests, it includes asking about providing alternative formats for people who are blind or have learning disabilities. It's been a long time since I took a test that wasn't conducted online or over the internet. It would be good to have some guidelines around online tests.

This is a good resource for printed, in person tests. Most of the tests students are taking right now are online, so this could be improved by adding online resources and guidelines as well.

Overall, I thought the test AUDIT is a great resource. I like how the test items AUDIT manual spreadsheet help evaluate how accessibility a test is. I think that is a good tool to have in place because it builds inclusivity and allows everyone to participate without feeling isolated.

This test AUDIT is a great resource for professors who are teaching in-person and require their tests to be taken in-person as well. This resources does not have much info regarding online classes and tests, which are trending in higher education. It would still be good for professors to take a look at this resource to reflect on other aspects of their class as well.

This was a good audit overall. I do think, however, there need to be some consideration for accessibility services or testing centers. Some of the items can be graded lower if given alone, however, if intended for a testing center, it may grade a little higher. Just my 2 cents.

It took me several years of struggling with the heavy door to my building, sometimes having to wait until a person stronger came along, to realize that the door was an accessibility problem, not only for me, but for others as well. And I did not notice, until one of my students pointed it out, that the lack of signs that could be read from a distance at my university forced people with mobility impairments to expend a lot of energy unnecessarily, searching for rooms and offices. Although I have encountered this difficulty myself on days when walking was exhausting to me, I interpreted it, automatically, as a problem arising from my illness (as I did with the door), rather than as a problem arising from the built environment having been created for too narrow a range of people and situations.
