Accessibility Theory, Test Accessibility, Cognitive Load Theory


Test Accessibility derived from the concept of Cognitive Load Theory to assess the achievement test, applied for testing development and relieving testers' brains processing. The testing is categorized into five compositions: item stimulus, item stem, visuals, answer choices, and page/item layout. According to the essential elements, the instructors were suggested to adapt multiple-choice test for students by applying to design the test in different levels, especially for primary school that focused on concrete to abstract learning in some specific subjects such as Mathematics and Science and technology etc.
