Testing Our Patience – Examples of Nemeth Code within UEB Context in Standardized Tests
Tuesday, August 22, 2017
11:00a to 12:30p EST
Presenter: Kyle DeJute, Chair, Mathematics, Science and Computer Notation Braille
Through a series of twenty or more print example items and their transcriptions using Nemeth within UEB, we will explore the most up-to-date Guidance for Transcription Using the Nemeth Code within UEB Contexts, clarify certain Nemeth Code rules, and illustrate some suggestions for standardized test material.
Selected passages from codes and guidance will be examined as they are applied. Some concepts covered will be stem-and-leaf plots, Nemeth switch indicators in series of items, digital time, item identifiers, systems of equations, and tactile graphics in relation to Nemeth within UEB.
This presentation does not only apply to standardized tests. The main goal is to apply Nemeth Code concepts; though some discussion of guidelines for standardized tests will be included.
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.
A file of the print samples and their transcriptions will be made available electronically to participants after the webinar.
To reiterate, this webinar will include:
- 20+ samples
- clarifications of the Guidance for Transcription Using the Nemeth Code within UEB Contexts
- illustration of Nemeth Code concepts
- some discussion of standardized test guidelines
- question-and-answer sessions
