Do university students with disabilities have access to alternative testing methods?
This question refers only to university students. In the US, for example, some universities offer courses that require students to sit no exams – their performance is measured by way of course work, assignments etc. Please describe what measures, if any, are being taken to provide alternative testing methods to those with disabilities?
Only 14 percent of respondents replied that alternative testing methods exist for students with disabilities at universities. In some countries the student with disabilities receives additional time for completing the exam (Togo, Armenia, Australia) while the use of assistive devices are not so common due to the fact that professors doubt the quality of the test when assistive devices or similar or being used during test (Canada, Namibia). Alternative testing methods are often subject to the type of disability and not available to all persons with any kind of disabilities (Ukraine, India, Pakistan, Greece, Austria) or limited to only some universities in the country (Austria, Romania, Chile, Poland).
32 percent of the respondents said such alternative testing methods do not exist at all in their country.
