Accessibility of Campus Computers: Disability Services Scale (ACCdss) v.1.0 = Accessibilite des technologies au campus: echelle des services pour etudiants handicapes v.1.
Fossey, Myrtis, E.; Fichten, Catherine S.; Robillard, Chantal; Asuncion, Jennison V.
This scale, "The Accessibility of Campus Computers: Disability Services Scale," provides postsecondary education institutions with a self-evaluation tool that will help determine how accessible their computer and learning technologies are to students with disabilities. It evaluates a range of situations such as: whether there are computers with adaptive technologies (e.g., software that reads what is on the screen, adaptive mouse) in general use in computer labs; whether personnel who provide services to students with disabilities on campus are consulted when computer infrastructure decisions are made; and whether computer-based learning materials (e.g., course Web pages) used by faculty meet accessibility guidelines. The measure consists of 21 6-point Likert-scaled items grouped into 5 empirically derived subscales: (1) Access to Adaptive Computers; (2) Infrastructure and Collaboration; (3) Academic Inclusion; (4) Adaptive Technology; and (5) Rehabilitation Sector Support. Information is also provided on norms, standardization, and availability (including Web sites). Both the English and French versions are included. (DB)
