Transition Assessment Resource Manual

The purpose of transition assessment is to identify a student’s strengths, preferences, interests, and needs and then assimilate these findings into a rigorous school program complete with realistic postsecondary goals, a challenging course of study, practical real-life community experiences, extra-curricular activities, and paid work, as appropriate, for an individual student.

What and how many different transition assessments will be used will vary from student to student. The findings of one assessment, for example, may indicate the need for another assessment in an area that the initial assessment identified. No one size fits all.
