This seminar was presented by Kathryn Coleman and Melinda Jolie from the UNSW Learning and Teaching Unit.
Inclusive assessment seeks to provide equal academic opportunities for all students. It acknowledges that some students have characteristics, distinct from their academic ability, which can jeopardize their capacity to meet assessment requirements in a manner equal to their peers.
This session aims to explore some of the immediate issues facing academic staff when assessing students with a disability. This includes discussion of key processes and provisions for these students, the role of the academic in such processes, the student experience and the need to address a growing population of students with less 'visible' disabilities, such as anxiety and learning difficulties.
