Conducting Necessary Transition Assessments

2 credits


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.
