Can a child sit the assessment if they are visually impaired?

So far we have been able to determine the reading attainment of pupils with many different visual impairments and will continue to train our machine learning models as we encounter new data. Using our unique assessment data, teachers have been able to pick up on pupils needing glasses as well as highlight those with optical impairments based on their eye movement patterns.

 ” The tests highlighted physical difficulties too. One pupil found it difficult to focus on the words with both eyes, which indicated that he might need glasses to correct his vision, so we spoke to his parents about arranging a sight test.”
