The DLM system is accessible for students with a variety of disabilities including significant cognitive disabilities, students who are deaf or hard of hearing, students who are blind or have low vision, and those who have neuromuscular, orthopedic, or other motor disabilities. Tests are flexible enough to accept a variety of responses, such as:
- Keyboard-entered responses
- Drag-and-drop responses that use the mouse to sort or label
- Responses using touch-screen technology (when available)
The system is also compatible with a variety of assistive technologies commonly used by students. It allows for varying levels of teacher assistance. Please see the Accessibility Manual for the current school year posted on the DLM Wisconsin webpage for specific policies related to the assessment.
