After reviewing the module and completing the accompanying activities, you should be able to:
- Define transition assessment
- Understand the different types of assessment
- Demonstrate how a transition IEP is based on transition assessment and addresses any gaps
- Write an assessment summary using a “transition lens”
You have learned the standard definition of transition assessment and different types of transition assessments. You have also been provided specific examples of formal and informal assessments.
- District assessment
- Situational assessment
- Self-determination evaluations
You have learned how to link or thread transition assessment information throughout the transition IEP. You have also learned how to determine if a gap exists between a student’s current skills and PSGs.
- Jenny’s course of study or schedule of classes was determined using assessment data and consideration of how the classes would increase her likelihood of mastering her PSGs.
- Jenny’s transition services were determined based on the activities that would assist Jenny to achieve her PSGs based on her current performance.
- Jenny’s goals and objectives were determined by looking at her current performance and the performance level that she needed to achieve her chosen PSGs.
Finally, you completed a transition planning form on Tyler, or a student of your choice, which provided you with practice using transition assessment information to drive the creation of a transition IEP.
Now you have the knowledge and tools to create a data driven, comprehensive, and realistic transition plan for students.
