Recruiting for D.C. Area Focus Group, Accessibility of High Stakes Testing

The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC®) is working with WGBH's Carl and Ruth Shapiro National Center for Accessible Media (WGBH-NCAM) to conduct a focus group on the accessibility of the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT®) by people who are blind, have low vision or have a mobility impairment, and who use a keyboard vs. a mouse for online navigation. Your participation is requested. Preference is given to individuals who have had experience taking a high stakes graduate admission test.

Focus Group participants will be asked questions about test taking experiences including test functionality and navigation, and to provide preferences for potential delivery of accessible graphics and other imagery.

An honorarium will be offered, and transportation to the site of the focus group (Reston, VA) arranged and costs reimbursed.

Please send an email to access at wgbh.org with "participate" in the subject line. The focus group will be held in the morning of one of these three dates. Please include your preferences of dates by indicating first choice and second choice.

Thursday, September 16
Tuesday, September 21
Monday, October 4

Thank you.
