How good is your organization at accommodating individuals with disabilities when test-time rolls around?
A recent article in Diversity Executive magazine highlights the work of Certiport, a software certification outfit, and the different test accommodations they offer, including:
- Voice recognition software
- Test assistants/surrogates
- Separate, larger rooms
- Extended test times
The article also points out some disturbing facts, like the 70% unemployment rate of individuals with disabilities and the fact that 2 out of 3 of these unemployed individuals would like to work.
Makes me wonder (for the millionth time) about the true nature of the looming "talent shortage"...
