Assessment Example

Assessment items use video and/or images to support decoding, and language in assessment is concise and appropriately complex. Calculator tools are available.

Non-example

Assessment content includes little to no graphics or images, and science contexts are discussed and displayed only via text.

Accessibility

Any videos included to support comprehension or decoding should be easily and concisely described in words, or an alternate version of the item should be available using text instead of video.
