Universal Design for Learning

Research of assessment in higher professional training
Publication date: 01 September 2015

Nowadays there is much enthusiasm for Universal Design for Learning as a vision in education. This educational framework starts from the principle that impediments are taken away by considering various learning styles of students with regard to their educational development. Thus, diversity appears to be the standard: the standard student does not exist. Nevertheless, right now many people wonder whether it is possible to also offer diverse assessment methods to students. In this project, the researchers are, therefore, searching for an answer to the question of whether diversity in tests and assessments is possible in order to enable students to comply with the standards of higher education qualifications.
