Assistive technology is defined as any item, piece of equipment, or product system, whether acquired commercially off the shelf, modified, or customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of a child with a disability.

As the Pandemic has pushed teachers and students to learn more digitally there has been more of a need for effective digital assessments. Luckily there are many effective assessment tools and strategies available at our fingertips. While it is easy to use tools like Google Forms to create multiple choice quizzes and worry about how to limit “cheating,” that may not be the most effective means of finding out what students know. We will give you the tools you need to assess your students and the strategies that best allow students to show you what they know. Along with giving you these resources, we will show you how this works in a high school Biology classroom and other classrooms.
