The test was presented in three formats: regular print, large print, audio support.
The test was given to 48 secondary-level students with learning disabilities (LD).
The Florida Statewide Student Assessment Test was used.
Large-print presentation resulted in the highest levels of performance overall. Performance with large print was significantly higher than performance with regular print and significantly higher than performance with audio support. Audio presentation resulted in higher performance than regular-print presentation. The large-print presentation resulted in higher performance levels than the regular-print presentation for five of the eight skills tested, and in higher performance levels than audio support for four of the eight skills tested.
