BloomBoard aims to provide equal opportunity for platform users to earn micro-credentials when their circumstances / contexts do not allow for them to document evidence of competency required for the micro-credential portfolio. Similar to an accommodation provided for students, assessment accommodations can be provided for platform users when their circumstances / contexts are out of their control and are due to the school environment and/or state or federal regulations. An example may be a platform user whose work environment, such as a Department of Juvenile Justice, prohibits them from video recording students.
Platform users who feel that they are unable to meet the Indicators of one or more micro-credentials they are aiming to earn may complete the BloomBoard Assessment Accommodation Request form (link). Please note, this link will force you to create a copy of the form to view/complete.
Email the completed form (link) to BloomBoard Support (email@example.com). Once received, BloomBoard will make a decision about the request for an assessment accommodation and inform you of that decision. It is at the sole discretion of BloomBoard to accept or deny the request.
BloomBoard Assessment Accommodation Policy
All users with an active BloomBoard Platform License to engage in a specific micro-credential should have equal opportunity to earn the micro-credential. BloomBoard recognizes that treating every person or situation the same is not always just because it can fail to acknowledge a platform user's specific circumstances that are out of their control. To that end, BloomBoard may provide assessment accommodations for platform users to earn micro-credentials when their circumstances do not allow for them to demonstrate specific knowledge and/or skills required in a micro-credential. An assessment accommodation must be applied for by a platform user and approved by BloomBoard. The approval of assessment accommodations will be contingent upon a variety of factors and it is at the sole discretion of BloomBoard to accept or deny the request.
