In this video, Emma McKinney, uses a real life scenario to bring to the fore, the challenges that deaf learners are likely to face with assessments. She explains the raison d’etre of assessments and underscores the fact that learners with congenital and acquired hearing loss will have different learning needs, hence different adaptation needs for assessments. She discusses a plethora of considerations that should inform teachers’ choices of adaptations and accommodations for each deaf child. She further shares common practices teachers can adopt to provide deaf learners with fair and valid assessment opportunities. This video lecture 7/9 of week 3 of the course: Educating Deaf Children: Becoming an Empowered Teacher.
