Inclusion and Accessibility in Educational Assessment SIG 96

Message from SIG Chair

Our special interest group focuses on the issues and practices related to the inclusion of all students in educational assessments, including English learners, students with disabilities, English learners with disabilities, and other students with accessibility needs. We promote fairness, expanding equal opportunities, and supporting college, career, and community readiness. We are a committed group of students, researchers, and practitioners who care deeply about the field and the students we serve.

We hold an annual meeting during the AERA conference, and we communicate with SIG members throughout the year. Our newsletters and email announcements include job postings and relevant publication highlights, and our LinkedIn forum promotes discussion and allows member to share resources. We also offer an annual paper award to recognize one submission for excellence in research methodology and execution and commitment to inclusion and accessibility in educational assessment. Please join this group to keep up with the latest news and discussions from the SIG.

We look forward to the 2024 annual meeting in Philadelphia and plan to host exciting paper and roundtable sessions. Please submit your proposals and volunteer to review others’ proposals.

If you have ideas or resources to share, reach out of find us on our LInkedIn page:  LinkedIn forum. We welcome feedback and suggestions. Invite others you know interested in the same topics, too!

Thank you for your interest in IAEA!
