Hi Everyone
I’ve been assessing pupils for school examination access arrangements over the past few weeks. Did you know that a simple coloured overlay can improve a student’s fluency by 40%? Visual stress should not be underestimated. A student may cope easily in Key stage three and even GCSE but the increased masses of reading involved in A level and can affect a student significantly.It is essential that the dyslexic student is allowed to access the exams on a level playing field and that access arrangements are fully assessed.
