Accessibility Statement

Digital Promise’s Learner Variability Project team is dedicated to ensuring that all users can access and achieve their goals when using the Learner Variability Navigator web app. We acknowledge that our site currently has features and content that are not fully conformant to WCAG 2.1 AA standards, and we are working daily to improve the accessibility and overall usability of the site.

Measures to support accessibility

The Learner Variability Project team takes the following measures to improve the accessibility of the Learner Variability Navigator:

Conformance status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Learner Variability Navigator is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard. We are implementing a plan to update the Learner Variability Navigator’s conformance with standards, as well as update the design to uphold a higher standard for inclusive design.
