The purpose of this checklist is to provide support for program evaluators who design, develop, implement, and disseminate evaluations. This checklist is designed to assist you in including people of all ages and abilities in your evaluation process. It was adapted from the seven principles of Universal Design developed by North Carolina State University, The Center for Universal Design (http://www.ncsu.edu/www/ncsu/design/sod5/cud/index.htm). The Adaptive Environments Center© (www.adaptenv.org) states “Universal design asks from the outset how to make the design work beautifully and seamlessly for as many people as possible. It seeks to consider the breadth of human diversity across the lifespan to create design solutions that work for all users”.
This checklist was developed for a Skill Building Session at Evaluation 2010.
