Study Participants Needed: A survey of TSVIs to assess the current status of high school math education for students with visual impairments.
C. Rett McBride is a Mathematics Education Ph.D. student at the University of Georgia and is recruiting study participants for his dissertation research: The Current Status of High School Mathematics Education for Students with Visual Impairments. The goals of the study include estimating participation rates in general education mathematics courses and gathering information about the tools and technologies used to support students in high school math. Dr. Tina Herzberg, director of the Visual Impairment Education program at the University of South Carolina Upstate is advising. Rett is committed to issues affecting the VI community: he is also currently collaborating with Dr. Penny Rosenblum, director of research at the American Foundation for the Blind, on two studies of the impact of COVID-19.
The survey is open to all TSVIs who were practicing in the U.S. in the 2019-2020 academic year. Depending on the number of high school students (if any) a participant was supporting in the fall of 2019, the survey may take between 15 and 30 minutes. Responses will be de-identified and used for research purposes only. If you are eligible, please consider participating; and feel free to share this announcement and the link to the survey with colleagues. If you have any questions about the survey or study, please contact Rett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This survey will close at midnight, May 31, 2020.
