Trammell, Jack
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v24 n3 p251-254 Fall 2011

This Practice Brief suggests accommodations and strategies that disability service providers can utilize in conjunction with faculty to help students with disabilities and postsecondary instructors achieve more valid measures of student learning when using multiple choice exams.
