What accessibility features and languages are available in the survey?

In Ascend and Elevate, student surveys contain a text-to-speech option so text can be read aloud to students to support their comprehension. 


The Elevate survey is available in Spanish. We will continue to find ways to support other languages in the future.


Program materials for educators are only available in English at this time.


How do students turn on the text-to-speech feature in Ascend & Elevate?

  1. Students will open the survey through the teacher instructions or perts.me

  2. To enable the text-to-speech feature students can toggle the text-to-speech button at the top of each page, and click the blue speech icons to the right of each question they want read out loud
