The RA11Y Plan (Review Accessibility Plan) is an initiative by the Sakai Accessibility Working Group to commission a substantive review of Sakai’s accessibility by an NFB-like group with a goal of obtaining a certification, including a VPAT and WCAG2-based review, that would assure potential adopters and current users alike. Sakai has a good history of accessibility but resources are limited and new developments in Sakai need to be reviewed and brought up to standard.
Phase 1 - 09/01/2015 to 08/31/2016
Fully funded and Completed
Phase 2 Start Date: 09/01/2016

The Rubrics work is in progress. It is fully funded for phases 1 and 2 and part of phase 3. As of Jan. 9th, 2017, Unicon has built the rubric management service and is working on the integration with the Sakai Assignments tool. Longsight will begin integration with GradebookNG in late Jan. or early Feb. 2017. Rubrics are tentatively scheduled for inclusion in the Sakai 12 release.
