NCSET Research to Practice Brief: What Algebra and Biology Students Have to Say About Universal Design for Learning

Author(s)
Larry Kortering, Terry McClannon, Patricia Braziel

Description

A brief outlining the findings of a study of whether universal design for learning (UDL) improves how students with mild disabilities perform in general education. The study's findings illustrate how students perceive individual interventions anchored by three key UDL principles - multiple ways of representing course content, multiple options for student expression and control, and multiple options for engagement and motivation. These individual interventions were used in standard-track high school algebra and biology classes.
