Proper vision is one of the most important requirements in learning. Whereas there are remedies for student who are not able to see, it is obvious that there are still other things that can not be sufficiently be provided, for instance diagrammatical presentation reinforce proper understanding during teaching and it is recommended for instilling dipper understanding of a concept to the students. Definitely, students who are not able to see completely are disadvantaged at this stage. Secondly, completely blind student will have reasonable problem and probably will not venture into other disciplines that requires over utility of the visual part of learning. Disciplines like biomedical sciences, where student are required to use microscope in analysis and observation of the micro units involves in the study can be a considerable challenge to the student with visual problems.
Lastly, most examinations are time bound, for the blind or those with low vision it will be appreciated that they cannot be timed the same as those with full and stable vision. In the examination again, there are diagrammatic examination that needs interpretation like in Geography, there is the topographical maps in physical Geography that requires interpretation, and how the students with vision problem cope with these situation is still not comprehended. Such questions have enabled the formulation of this proposal to fathom the arrangement that allows the student to acquire training in such challenging environment. The assessment can therefore be conveniently be assessed using the alternative assessment research since the one undertaking the research will be in apposition to observe and advance an appropriate responses to the concerns. The research will be more of qualitative since the researcher can make self-assessment on the issues needed to be addressed. Alternative the traditional method can also be engaged for the same assessment criterion.
