1.3 Offer alternatives for visual information
Assessment Example

If an assessment requires watching and interpreting an image or video to answer a question, such as seeing bubbles in a video of baking soda react to vinegar to understand a chemical reaction is taking place, an alternate version of the assessment describes the same process in sounds or words that can be read aloud.

Non-example

Test content requires sight in order answer questions, such as only offering a video of baking soda and vinegar, when the tested content standard does not require interpreting information in a video.

Accessibility

Students with visual impairments require text and grahics to be read aloud, so any graphic should be easily and concisely described in words.
