French teachers' intentions to use accommodated materials in learning and assessment

Abstract

The implementation of inclusive practices in mainstream education remains particularly difficult in the French context and is influenced by various factors including the types of disability labels, and the type of assessment practices that are used. Indeed, how student disability is labelled impacts teacher attitudes by disfavouring students labelled with autism. Moreover, normative assessment is strongly linked with selection at schools-a function that works against teacher attitudes towards inclusive education. This article reports on a study in which we examined teacher intentions to use materials accommodated to special educational needs students, as a function of special needs labelling. Specifically, this refers to the use of labels for either a disability or special educational need, in connection to tasks associated with learning or assessment. The results of our study revealed that, for both types of label, the intentions to use accommodated materials are lower when teachers are asked to assess student competence than when prompted to teach this competence. These findings are discussed with notable consideration given the incompatibility between selection in schools-which is aligned with the principle of meritocracy-and efforts to promote inclusive education practices.
