Thursday, April 03, 2003 Scantron offers ?free? online assessments for schools - Corey Murray, eSchool News
To help educators meet the rigorous demands of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), Scantron Corp. is offering $2.5 million worth of free, computer-based assessments to schools nationwide. The catch: schools taking advantage of the offer can expect to pay a one-time training fee of up to $2,000. The initiative, announced March 25, will provide schools with 250,000 standards-based assessments using Scantron’s Performance Series, a computer-adaptive online assessment program tailored to each test taker’s individual ability and grade level.

Schools turning more to computers for standardized testing - Associated Press

When the school testing season picks up steam next month, something will be missing in many classrooms - the No. 2 pencil. Instead, an estimated 60,000 test-takers - that's almost one in three - will grab a computer mouse, gaze at a computer screen and click their way through the test. They face the same number of questions, drawn from the same list, as students taking their tests on paper. But a student can take the computerized tests anytime from October to May, not just during this year's March 17 to April 18 testing window for paper tests.

Assistive Technology: Research and Development of Products that Aid the Disabled
James Samuel Harris, Jr.
14 APRIL 1999

Assistive Technology may be classified as any aid and/or adaptive device that enables a disabled individual, or any individual, to accomplish his/her task. More importantly is that Assistive Technology has become very important to the disability community at-large; especially those qualified individuals with a disability who choose to seek a college and/or university level education, and/or find employment, . However, since the passage of the Americans With Disabilities Act, recent legislation in the form of the Tech Act has increased research and development of advanced assistive products. Thus this increased focus on research and development, by public and private for-profit and nonprofit corporations, has enabled the Assistive Technology Industry to address the needs of the disabled across all disability categories.

Products to Aid the Disabled
INTRODUCTION Assistive Technology, as an industry, has increased its focus on research and development of innovative technology for use by individuals with disabilities. This major thrust by the industry was made possible by the passage of the Assistive Technology Act which was signed by President Clinton in 1998. However, inretrospect, the

Spring 1997, Vol. 8 No. 2 by Pamela Haggerty Jim Barnhart works at Bell Atlantic in Philadelphia as a computer programmer/analyst. He is in his late thirties and is visually impaired. He did not lose his vision until he was eighteen, when he was a college student majoring in Surveying Technology at Pennsylvania State University. As Jim remembers it, his whole world changed when he began to lose his sight. He had to drop out of Penn State for awhile. He reapplied as a computer science major but was counseled to change his major to Business Administration. In 1983, he graduated with a degree in Business Administration with a focus in Business Logistics. Jim is very independent. He lives alone and commutes to work each day via public transportation. He avoids rush hour traffic by leaving his apartment at 5:30 a.m. and leaving work at 2:30 p.m. His only orientation and mobility aid is a cane. His hobbies include reading and cooking. People with visual impairments can borrow books from Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic in Princeton, which provides books on audiocassettes, and the Library of Congress which provides books on diskettes. Jim prefers borrowing books from the Library of Congress because he likes their selection.

Jim uses an IBM 386 computer with a standard monitor, QWERTY keyboard, and a screen reading system. He has an
