Use Organizers, Story Webs, and Concept Mapping Tools
organizers, story webs, concept mapping
5.2 Use multiple tools for construction and composition
Assessment Example

Assessment content may be responded to through organizers, story webs, and concept mapping tools. For example, students can build a model virtually by using drag-and drop technology to place organisms in a food chain. Students can use alternate pencils for composition.

Non-example

Content of assessment items is limited to large blocks of text when a model or other organizing tool could reduce the cognitive demand. Students with mobility challenges do not have alternatives for constructing models.

Accessibility

Consider how students with visual impairments or communication support needs can interact with a computer-generated model onscreen. Graphic organizers or other data organizers (e.g., story webs, concept mapping) should reflect only the most pertinent information so students can access the organizer via alternate text.
