Full course description
The purpose of this training is to give educators the information and tools needed to conduct meaningful transition assessments. This training was created by the Student-Centered Transitions Network (SCTN). SCTN is a special education technical assistance network of the Texas Education Agency (TEA).
Conducting age-appropriate transition assessments is the foundation for building quality transition services for students with disabilities.
In this course, you will learn more about:
- The role of transition assessments within the transition process
- The federal and state requirements for transition assessments
- The difference between formal and informal assessments for transitions
- How to choose appropriate transition assessments based on individual student needs
- How to use the results of transition assessments within the Individualized Education Program (IEP)
As you work through this self-paced course, you will complete a pre-test, reflect on the transition assessment practices in your own school, and complete a post-test that assesses your learning. You will complete one module at a time before you can move to the next module.
