An exemplar assessment created using the Surpass® Assessment Platform has been awarded with the Accredited Plus award from the accessibility charity, AbilityNet. An application awarded with Accredited Plus has been tested by people with a diverse range of disabilities and complies with WCAG 2.0 AA. AbilityNet accessibility testing is undertaken by a broad network of genuinely representative disabled consumers who can provide an authentic account of the key issues they encounter. Any issues identified during the review procedure have been subsequently resolved to provide ‘real-life accessibility’.
The exemplar assessment contains a variety of questions which were authored using ContentProducer™, the Surpass Platform content creation tool, and is delivered using SecureAssess®, the Surpass Platform on-screen delivery system.
