ACES Taxonomy  (Research based)

The Accessible Campus Environment Survey (ACES) was developedas a tool designed to evaluate campus accessibility from a student perspective and covers a broad array of post-secondary student experiences. ACES was designed to be presented through the use of a software program called X-Fact, utilizing a scaling strategy known as Trichotomous Tailored Sub-branching Scaling (TTSS). It is presented here as an Excel chart with definitions of activities and scoring option.

"July 26 marks the 19th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.... the ADA's provisions include the right to seek, obtain, pursue and maintain employment without being hampered by physical or attitudinal barriers. I believe that having a job is a civil right. Those who are qualified for and want to work should not be denied that right because of an inaccessible building or an outdated set of assumptions about what they can or cannot do..."
