Re: ACR Best Practices


From: Jonathan Avila

It is important to demonstrate the knowledge and quality of the evaluation and efforts for supporting criteria to differentiate a product ACR from one that just marks all criteria as supports without accuracy. That is -- if someone doesn't provide supporting details -- then how will a procurer know which ACR is completed by a competent provider or someone who just checked the checkbox. There are additional ways such as having an ACR completed by a third party company, etc. -- but an easy way to demonstrate that an ACR was created with a thorough audit by an expert is to demonstrate this in the supporting remarks and comments. The response doesn't need to be long -- but perhaps a sentence, two, or three demonstrating steps taken -- e.g. use of heading, ARIA landmark, table structure for SC 1.3.1, etc.

Hi All,

I've been receiving audits asking to explain in detail how criteria are supported. I am fully aware that explaining how criteria are not supported or partially supported is critical, but I'm wondering how in depth you all usually go into detail for criteria that is fully supported?
