About dark and high contrast mode
Accessibility is an important trend in e-assessment: it is crucial that people with low vision or color vision deficiencies get the same chances as other people when taking an exam. The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) are generally accepted accessibility standards with which e-assessment platforms should try to comply.
As an administrator, you can activate a dark mode and a high contrast mode for your assessmentQ environment.
Note: You can define the settings for the dark and high contrast mode via the Themes modules.
Proceed as follows to enable the dark and high contrast mode:
- In the Settings module, open the General submodule and click on Accessibility.
- Select the option Enable dark mode and high contrast mode.
Result: Authors will be able to switch view modes in the item or assignment preview, so they can make sure upfront that their content works in all view modes. The participants will be able to select the dark mode or high contrast mode via the Preferences menu in the portal and player.
