Assessment Example

Assessment content only includes basic imagery or graphics that enhance student context, not adding extra information for students to process.

Non-example

The content on the screen shows a complex graphic, such as a child putting ice in a glass at a party with seven other people present or a ruler with marks for 8ths of an inch when only quarter inches are needed. Extra buttons or online tools are present on the screen without a clear use.

Accessibility

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