Can we truly level the playing field? Assessing the equity of note taking accommodations

How do we evaluate equity for students who need note taking support?

What we discussed

The physical act of note taking is proven to be crucial to the learning process and retention, but many accommodations provide students with just the finished product.

Kenneth A. Kiewra’s seminal research highlighted the need for the act of note taking in the encoding-storage paradigm. In fact, there is only a 5% chance that students will recall information in a test if they did not choose to capture it in their notes.

Our Peer Panel of Disability Support professionals and students discuss their experiences of how important note taking is for student independence and the development of key skills — especially with online and blended learning.
