ALEKS - Assessment and Learning

Mathematics & Statistics Accessibility

At McGraw-Hill Education, we are committed to making the education experience more efficient and effective by combining digital content with software that harnesses the science of learning. To achieve this goal, we are making efforts to create universally accessible products available to any and all learners, including individuals with disabilities.

Our Commitment

We at McGraw-Hill Education are committed to developing products that can be accessed and used by any and all learners, including those with disabilities, and have created a culture that considers those with differing learning and access needs from the outset. This effort includes a comprehensive strategy that combines planning, research, training, and product development activities with both McGraw-Hill employees and third-party content partners. Specific initiatives include:

Creation of Accessible Products – McGraw-Hill Education is making efforts to have all new content and software follow the WCAG version 2.0 AA guidelines and best practices. To achieve this and continuously improve the accessibility of our products, we are utilizing our internal product teams, engaging with external experts, and soliciting user feedback.

Employee Training – Accessibility is central to our design and development efforts. Employees and resource providers in those roles have been educated and trained on accessibility guidelines to support the development of products that are compliant with WCAG 2.0 AA guidelines.

Community Inclusion – In addition to developing experiences that meet the recommended guidelines, we are engaged with accessibility advocacy organizations, forums, and user groups in order to get confirmation that the software and content we produce is not only compliant but, more importantly, usable by learners.

Alternative Content – We recognize that we need to work closely with all of our education partners as we progress towards our accessibility goal. In the event that alternative content formats are required, we evaluate the options and (whenever possible) provide the necessary content.

Creating accessible products is a priority for McGraw-Hill Education. We have put in place processes to make accessibility and meeting the WCAG 2.0 AA guidelines part of our day-to-day development efforts and product roadmaps. We will measure and track our progress to ensure we continually make improvements to address the evolving industry standards and to meet our learners’ accessibility needs.

When discussing accessibility, it is useful to distinguish three distinct components that constitute our products: Textbooks, Media, and Platforms. An eBook and videos are available within the ALEKS platform, and a printed textbook can be used in conjunction with ALEKS. Accessibility for all three of these components is described below.
