    • Transition Planning Inventory (TPI)

      • Transition screening for students with mild disabilities

    • LCCE Batteries (Published by CEC)

      • Knowledge Battery-200 multiple choice test

      • Performance Battery-Performance-based measures

    • Brigance Diagnostic Inventory of Employability Skills

      • Criterion referenced performance-based assessment

    • Brigance Diagnostic Inventory of Life Skills

      • Criterion referenced performance-based assessment

  • ESTR III

  • ESTR III Parent Form

  • ESTR-J-Revised

  • ESTR-J-Revised Parent Form

  • Transition Planning in the Schools: Using the Enderle-Severson Transition Rating Scales, 3rd Edition


ESTR III

  • Items reflect the original scale (published in 1991).

  • 5 transition areas-

  • Reduced number of items from ESTR-III.

  • Same 5 transition areas-

    • Employment, Recreation & Leisure, Home Living, Community Participation, Post Secondary Education

    • Areas are inclusive of the areas identified in IDEA

  • Useful when assessing students with MILD disabilities.

Vermillion


ESTR-J-Revised Administration

  • Respondents

    • Parent Form (gray form)

  • Rating system

    • Yes=Independent and Consistent

    • No= Not performed or performed inconsistently.

Brigance Life Skills Inventory

  • Provides performance-based assessment to determine students strengths/needs

  • Does not assess Postsecondary Goals (Future Outcomes)

  • Is not organized around the five transition areas

  • Does not assess planning issues

  • But-it DOES provide performance based assessment of student skills

Sitlington, Clark, and Kolstoe (2000)

  • The most central and critical use of transition assessment information is as a component of the Present Level of Educational Performance in the student’s IEP. Transition goals and objectives, along with official linkages with nonschool agencies, would come directly from transition-referenced assessment and the information in the Present Level of Educational Performance. The data should have direct implications for instructional program decisions, including program design, program placement, curriculum planning, instructional procedures, and additional assessment requirements.
