The Second Edition of this handbook provides comprehensive coverage of the concept of accessibility and its application to the design and implementation of instruction and tests with all students. It updates and expands on its original contents and responds to the increasing demand for research-based evidence of accessible instruction and testing practices from the professional community. Chapters explore how outcomes are affected when essential features or components of instructional materials and tests are not accessible to any portion of the student population. The handbook addresses the new set of Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing that was published in 2014 as well as requirements for a high level of access for all interim and summative tests by national testing consortiums. In addition, the handbook describes how the Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST) has continued to advance Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles in mainstream education with teachers of all types of students, not just students with disabilities. Topics featured in this text include: A summary of U.S. policies that support inclusive assessment for students with disabilities. An overview of international policies that support inclusive assessments. Designing, developing, and implementing an accessible computer-based national assessment system. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles and the future of assessment. Recent advancements in the accessibility of digitally delivered educational assessments. The Handbook of Accessible Instruction and Testing Practices, Second Edition is an essential reference for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students in education and allied disciplines, including child and school psychology; assessment, testing and evaluation; social work; and education policy and politics.

In order for children to have access to quality educational experiences, all members of the school community must participate in school restructuring (parents, advocates, educators, community leaders, and policymakers). Researchers and teacher training institutions also play a vital role. This book provides easy access to information of particular interest to different groups and individuals who support advocacy-driven school reform. It is organized around 10 vital student entitlements discussed within 8 chapters that focus on the following topics: parent participation, student admission and placement, student instruction, enhancing individual potential, student support services, school climate, teacher empowerment, and school finance. A fictional vignette is presented at the beginning of each chapter, representing an imaginary elementary school on its way to becoming the Good Common School (a school with the primary goal of providing educational excellence for all of its students). Following these vignettes are step-by-step instructions or standards for achieving advocacy-driven reform. The second section of each chapter supports the need for fundamental change by documenting the problems found within most public elementary schools. Following the vignettes and problem statements, advocacy strategies in each chapter show how advocates work to reform schools in their own communities. These are followed by descriptions of promising school-based practices successfully implemented in real elementary schools. Each chapter ends with a summary of education research relating to the chapter's topics. (561 references) (LAP)
