I have been asked and have happily agreed to share this information with
our group. Please note that the National Federation of the Blind has
approved this announcement.
Please contact s. Dubnow (contact information below) to request to
participate in this study.
*Subject:* Paid Student Feedback Opportunity with McGraw-Hill Education
McGraw-Hill Education has been working on accessibility for their online
homework programs and would like to gather feedback from students in grades
6 through 12 regarding the usability of online assignments. Specifically,
McGraw-Hill is looking at the usability of its matching and ordering
question types (e.g. ordering a sequence of events).
Would your child be interested in participating? If your child qualifies
for the study, here’s what to expect.
*Time Commitment:* 1 hour
*Date Options:* July 22 through August 2, 2019
*Offered Hours:* 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM Eastern Time
*Incentive:* $150 Amazon gift card. The gift card will be emailed to you
(the child’s parent/guardian) after the feedback session.
1. Student in grade 6 through 12
2. Rely on a screen reader when using a computer
3. Currently uses JAWS 2018 or JAWS 2019
4. Use JAWS Tandem during the remote session for screen sharing
5. Have access to a laptop or desktop and a phone for the session
During the session, your child will speak to one to two researchers from
McGraw-Hill and provide feedback on the online assignment experience. The
feedback session will take place remotely via JAWS Tandem. Your child will
need access to a desktop or laptop with internet and a phone line in order
You (the parent/guardian) will be required to sign a consent form, granting
permission for your child to participate in the usability test. The session
will be recorded (both audio and visual) for research purposes only and
will not be shared outside of McGraw-Hill.
If your child is interested, please let me know and I will forward your
contact information to McGraw-Hill Education.
