I Overview of Assessment

Page history last edited by Michael Stoehr 5 years, 10 months ago

 

 Transition assessment is an ongoing and coordinated process that begins in middle school onward, and assists students with disabilities to identify and plan for post-school goals and adult roles. (Sitlington, P. Neubert, D. Begun, W. , Lombard, R., Leconte, P.(2007)

  

The Division on Career Development and Transition (DCDT) of the Council for Exceptional Children defines transition assessment as an “…ongoing process of collecting data on the individual’s needs, preferences, and interests as they relate to the demands of current and future working, educational, living, and personal and social environments. Assessment data serve as the common thread in the transition process and form the basis for defining goals and services to be included in the Individualized Education Program (IEP)”  (Sitlington, Neubert, & LeConte, 1997; p. 70-71).

 

Federal law requires “appropriate measurable postsecondary goals based upon age appropriate transition assessments related to training, education, employment, and, where appropriate, independent living skills” (§300.320[b][1]).

Transition & Career Assessment: Looking at the Whole Student- 2009-2010 PA Transition Community of Practice Videoconference Series

Assessment for transitioning youth and young adults with disabilities is often viewed as only a formal evaluation or a singular test. This limited approach to assessment frequently leads to a skewed understanding of youths’ potential.  The following materials from this series provide information regarding effective holistic assessment practices that lead to a successful and fulfilling future at home, school, and in the community for youth.
