Reasonable Adjustment

Adapted Reasonable Adjustment in teaching, learning and assessment for candidates with a disability – November 2010 – Prepared by – Queensland VET Development Centre

Reasonable adjustment in VET is the term applied to modifying the learning environment or making changes to the training delivered to assist a candidate with a disability. A reasonable adjustment can be as simple as changing classrooms to be closer to amenities or installing a particular type of software on a computer for a person with vision impairment.

Why make a reasonable adjustment?

We make reasonable adjustments in VET to make sure that candidates with a disability have:

  • The same learning opportunities as candidates without a disability, and
  • The same opportunity to perform and complete assessments as those without a disability.

Reasonable adjustment applied to participation in teaching, learning and assessment activities can include:

  • Customising resources and assessment activities within the training package or accredited course
  • Modifying the presentation medium
  • Candidate support
  • Use of assistive/adaptive technologies
  • Making information accessible both before enrolment and during the course
  • Monitoring the adjustments to ensure candidates needs continue to be met

Assistive/Adaptive Technologies

Assistive/Adaptive technology means ‘software or hardware that has been specifically designed to assist people with disabilities in carrying out daily activities’ (World Wide Web Consortium – W3C). It includes screen readers, magnifiers, voice recognition software, alternative keyboards, devices for grasping, visual alert systems, digital note-takers.

IMPORTANT:

Reasonable adjustment made for collecting candidate assessment evidence must not impact on the standard expected by the workplace, as expressed by the relevant unit(s) of competency. For example, if the assessment were gathering evidence of the candidate’s competency in writing, allowing the candidate to complete the assessment verbally would not be a valid assessment method. The method of assessment used by any reasonable adjustment must still meet the competency requirements.

Resources Required for Assessment

To complete the Practical Assessment tasks, you will require access to:

  • Computer with internet and email access, and a working web browser
  • Installed software: Word, Adobe Acrobat Reader
  • An industry workplace; or an industry-realistic simulated environment that will allow you access to:

      • Current sales performance
