Connective Threads & Disruptive Gaps Assessing the Accessibility of Assigned Readings in Master’s Level Courses Emily Simmons, INLS 737, April 2021
I collected the data for this project by examining the assigned readings from the courses I took last semester and the courses I am taking this semester. I assessed the accessibility of each reading and recorded the data in a spreadsheet. I assessed over 250 texts, including book chapters, scholarly articles, YouTube videos, radio segments, and websites. Almost 25% of the texts were inaccessible.
