Align Appropriate Assessment with Inclusive Use of Technology & Data Literacy

According to the NETP, “technology has the potential to move assessment from disjointed separate measures of student progress to an integrated system of assessments and personalized instruction to meet the needs of the learner.” To move toward realization of its potential for all students, educators are aware how accessibility features and interoperability with assistive technology can provide a more complete picture about the needs, interests and abilities of student with disabilities. Technology can integrate formative and summative assessments more fully with student classroom experiences, homework assignments, all of which are tied closely to academic standards. Online learning platforms can display missing assignments, assess progress toward goals, and provide a means to improve for communication between educators, students, and parents.
