Study conducted to evaluate a prototype Internet-based multimedia testing and assessment system that employs video, audio, and picture supports to enable people with intellectual disabilities to complete online tests and assessments independently. Software authoring tools found at http://www.asp.net were used to create the software modules and databases for the system, while FlashMX was used to apply the audio, digital image, and video media in the testing format. Twenty-two adolescents and adults participated in the study. The participants required an average of 7.5 prompts to complete a traditional written examination, while they only needed an average of 2.2 prompts to complete the prototype online version of the test. The authors contend that the results have implications for the utilization of self-directed multimedia formats for people with intellectual or learning disabilities.
