Hi All,

The W3C/WAI Research and Development Working Group (RDWG) will hold an 
online symposium to collect exactly this type of information:
- <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-ig/2011JulSep/0209>

RDWG uses a wiki to collect and document resources; here is the page 
related to this online symposium:
- <http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/wiki/Benchmarking_Web_Accessibility_Metrics>

Let's discuss how we to best coordinate between both activities but 
meanwhile please send any resources that you want to share to both:
- <public-wai-evaltf@w3.org>
- <public-wai-rd@w3.org>

Best,
   Shadi

I am not sure if we could publish it at the bottom of our page, but we could maybe make a seperate page or place it somewhere else like on the eAccessplus network HUB. eAccessplus is a European project network. This network could maybe help us find more information.

I have lots of journal articles that I can wade through to see which ones specifically apply to measuring and testing accessibililty.  We'll see what everyone thinks on Thursday.

I remember for the WAI Ageing Task Force, they did a literature survey at the beginning to leverage existing resources.  Perhaps in our document we could have a informative resources list for further reading at the end if appropriate..  Some examples (no endorsement implied, just informational) I found of some resources on measuring web accessibility were:
