AERA 2017 – Online Learning and Requesting Accommodations for College Students With Disabilities

The third session I’m blogging at the 2017 annual meeting of the American Education Research Association (AERA) is:

Online Learning and Requesting Accommodations for College Students With Disabilities

  • In Event: Promoting Student Success

Fri, April 28, 10:35am to 12:05pm, Grand Hyatt San Antonio, Fourth Floor, Republic C

Abstract

Online learning has increased access to non-traditional student populations in higher education but it appears that students with disabilities may have been overlooked in the rapid expansion. Access to higher education via online learning does not necessarily equate to this access being accessible to students with disabilities. The current study examines how perceptions and attitudes toward requesting accommodations in the online learning environment predict whether students with disabilities report requesting accommodations in these environments. We statistically control for student attitudes toward requesting accommodations in the face to face learning environment. Results indicate that perceptions and attitudes toward requesting accommodations in the online learning environment do predict whether students with disabilities report requesting accommodations.
