The Inclusion of Students with Disabilities: Bulletin


The Centre de documentation collégiale (CDC) is proud to present this new College Documentation Bulletin’s issue:

The Inclusion of Students with Disabilities in Quebec Colleges,

by Alice Havel and Odette Raymond.

Along with the continual growth in the number of students with disabilities in colleges over the past 20 years, the associated challenges have become increasingly more complex. Consequently, there has been a paradigm shift emerging that not everyone is ready to adopt. We are gradually moving towards a Universal Design (UD) approach that allows us to respond to the diverse needs of today’s student population. This bulletin is especially for you, the teachers who daily plan and implement the strategies, methods of evaluation and various measures to ensure that as many of your students as possible can succeed, regardless of their differences.

Academic Motivation: Bulletin


The Centre de documentation collégiale (CDC) is proud to present this new College Documentation Bulletin’s issue.

Academic Motivation,

By Isabelle Cabot.

Motivation is a very broad field of knowledge that can be applied to different life contexts to better understand them and influence their course. Cultivating one’s health is one such context. Learning is another. This annotated bibliography addresses the area of academic motivation, a more precise field than motivation alone and yet still extensive. An impressive number of concepts are related to it, among which there is a lot of overlap. Researchers choose some of these elements to express various views of motivation in the form of models. We can then choose the view or views that best meet our needs and use them to build a research plan or a pedagogical strategy. By means of this exercise, my goal is to clarify the main motivational concepts that apply in education while limiting myself to the literature available at the CDC in order for college reader to have access to them free of charge.

Summative Assessment: Bulletin

The Centre de documentation collégiale (CDC) is proud to present this new College Documentation Bulletin’s issue.

Summative Assessment,

by Robert Howe.

Summative assessment is almost an everyday topic of discussion. All teachers assess student learning; always in a “summative” way and almost always in a “formative” way. For many, summative assessment is the assessment that “counts,” and formative assessment is the one that “does not count.”

This literature review might seem outdated to some, because almost all the texts that deal with learning assessment are explicitly or implicitly rooted in summative assessment. It is, however, important to go back in order to reconnect with the basic principles of measurement and evaluation. This is what we offer in this selection of documents—references that are all conducive to reflection.
