Description

A tool outlining steps that states can take to ensure universal design of assessments. The recommendations can be used for both computer and paper-based assessments. The authors recommend that states follow the steps provided in chronological order. Including any step in the design and review of tests may improve the design features of a state assessment. This online document is accompanied by a more detailed "How-To" manual (see "A State Guide to the Development of Universally Designed Assessments").
