Technical Assistance Advisory: Transition Assessment in the Secondary Transition Planning Process.  Information on transition assessments including the purpose, types of assessments, documenting them in the IEP, getting consent, and choosing assessments. 

The IEP Team should consider three questions to guide transition assessment:

  1. Who is the student (i.e., what are the student's needs and strengths)?
  2. Who does the student want to be, or what does the student want to do (i.e., what are the student's preferences and interests)?
  3. What is the fit between the student and the requirements of the educational, employment, and living environments into which the student plans to move when he or she exits high school?
