Deadline February 20!!
APH is seeking field evaluators for new plastic braille folders. In an attempt to meet a need brought to our attention, these folders are designed to hold 11.5”x11” braille sheets. They will expand up to ¾” thick, and will fit into a three-ring binder designed for 11.5”x11” braille sheets.
Field evaluators will be asked to use the prototypes with students with visual impairments and blindness, preferably in middle and high school. These evaluators may also be parents of students with visual impairments. Evaluators will then complete and return a product evaluation form at the end of the testing period. Field test sites will be selected based upon geographic location, number of available students, and type of instructional setting. The number of prototypes is limited. Field testing is scheduled to begin by mid-March 2015 and should take less than a month.
If you are interested in serving as a field evaluator, please provide the following information: your name, title, school/agency, type of setting (e.g., residential, itinerant), number of available students (with ages, grade levels, and primary reading media indicated), and your complete contact information (phone number, mailing address, and email address). Send this information to Laura Zierer (firstname.lastname@example.org), Research Assistant by February 20, 2015. You may also contact Laura at 502-899-2279. Thank you!
