Topic

assessmentQ (https://assessmentq.com/) is a digital exam platform developed and maintained by Televic Education. 250+ customers are using assessmentQ for organizing online and digital (practice) exams all over the world.

To answer the question: "is assessmentQ accessible for every possible participant?", We should first answer the question: who uses or wants to use assessmentQ? Do we only target mouse or touch users? Are users in need of more assistance included in our design and development process? Is it easy for them to take online exams? What about users using (because they have to):

  • Keyboard navigation
  • Switch devices (yes/no)
  • Mouthstick and Sip and puff devices
  • Voice recognition software
  • Screenreaders (desktop & mobile)
  • Zoom tools
  • Braille input and display
  • ...
  • The scope of the thesis / internship contains the following key subjects:
  • Research and documentation on the WCAG 2.1 requirements, applicable for assessmentQ
  • Research and documentation on the available tools and devices, and the types of users that need assistance in an online e-learning / e-assessment world.
  • Research and learn more on automated testing tools, like Lighthouse, AXE, WAVE, Accessibility insights (microsoft)
  • Automated and manual testing of our online exam / exercise player
