Inclusion is compromised when captions are not available
The issue of the provision of captioned educational content is an important one for students, as its lack has a long term negative effect on hearing impaired students learning outcomes. Other arrangements need to be made for a student when it is certain that a particular title is not available in a captioned format.
Reasonable adjustments need to be made to ensure inclusion of the student in the activity or assessment. Hearing impaired students are exempt from assessment that include comment on music or tone of voice, when an assessment task is based on listening.
