Accessibility for Individuals with Disabilities
The NSSE online instrument has been designed to meet current accessibility standards. Indiana University’s Center for Survey Research (CSR), NSSE’s partner for survey implementation, strives to meet the standards of WCAG 1, WCAG 2, and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Along with testing, CSR takes the survey using JAWS, one of the most used screen-reading assistive tools. In addition, NSSE staff are available Monday-Friday by phone to receive relay calls for hearing impaired students.
CSR scans the survey for accessibility issues using a variety of tools:
- The Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool
- SortSite 5
- Google Chrome Accessibility Developer Tool
