Student assessment: an inclusive perspective on assessment in the context of distance or hybrid learning

The third webinar of the Teaching inclusively in 2020: COVID-19, remote learning and universal design for learning series was titled Student assessment: an inclusive perspective on assessment in the context of distance or hybrid learning 

A panel of post-secondary teachers, a student and an adapted services counsellor discussed the following theme:

The COVID-19 context brings additional constraints to assessment situations, both with remote teaching and with a hybrid model. It can become complex to accurately respond to the accommodation requests of students with disabilities. Many of the basics for inclusive assessment adapted to the pandemic will be presented as well as a suggestion of a tool for self-assessment in evaluation situations aimed at meeting the needs of the student body.
