Last month, we presented the 90-minute Testing Our Patience webinar led by Kyle DeJute, Chair of NBA’s Nemeth Code for Math and Science Committee. If you missed the chance to join us live during the training, we’ve made it available to purchase as a video. With the webinar presented as a video, you can watch it anytime and learn at your own pace.
During the 90-minute training, you’ll learn about Nemeth in Unified English Braille contexts while working through thirty-one print examples.
TESTING OUR PATIENCE – EXAMPLES OF NEMETH CODE WITHIN UEB CONTEXTS IN STANDARDIZED TESTS
Through a series of thirty-one print example items and their transcriptions using Nemeth within UEB, we explore the most up-to-date Guidance for Transcription Using the Nemeth Code within UEB Contexts (approved April 2018, published 08/19/2018). We also clarify certain Nemeth Code rules and illustrate some suggestions for standardized test material.
Some concepts covered include stem-and-leaf plots, Nemeth switch indicators in series of items, item identifiers, blanks in tables, and tactile graphics in relation to Nemeth within UEB. Questions raised during the live presentation are addressed throughout.
This presentation of examples and discussion of code interpretation will be in a webinar format. Question-and-answer sessions will occur at the middle and at the end of the 90-minute time slot.
The 90-minute training video can be purchased through Vimeo for a one-time purchase price of $25.00. To watch a trailer of the video or to purchase the training, visit the On Demand page with Vimeo here.
