Anyone with an interest in Special Requirements and Circumstances, and anyone who is working in this area.
SRC Members are currently working on:A detailed overview of requirements and their possible implications, and a set of guidelines for test developers.
Our Focus:We are collecting examples of best practice and planning to publish a set of guidelines in this area.
We are also preparing a detailed overview of requirements and possible accommodations, as well as their implications for the test and the test-taking environment.
An ongoing discussion in our SIG is on the topic of dyslexia, assessment of the degree of dyslexia and the appropriate accomodations. We are glad to have a guest speaker to shed some light on this in Leuven: Dr Anna Gellert. She will talk about the Danish dyslexia test and discuss some it with the members of the SIG.
