Silver Requirement - Slight Rewording


The updated wording for a Silver requirement that COGA approved and sent to
Silver changed slightly.  I believe the parts that COGA had concerns about
remain unchanged but we want to make sure the group sees the changes and
has a chance to express concerns.

Please read the statement below and send a +1 if you are OK with the
wording or let the group know your concerns. We would like to close this
out by email so please respond by next Thursday's (January 28) meeting.

Silver guidance includes tests and other evaluation methods. Some guidance
may use true/false verification but other guidance will use other ways of
measuring and/or evaluating where appropriate so that more needs of people
with disabilities may be included (for example: rubrics, sliding scale,
task-completion, user research with people with disabilities, and more).
This approach includes particular attention to people whose needs may
better be met with a broad testing strategy, such as people with low
vision, limited vision, or cognitive and learning disabilities.

Thank you,


Rachael Montgomery, PhD
Director, Accessible Community
