Transition goals and services must be in place no later than when the student reaches age 16, as mandated by the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA 2004). In Arkansas, these are the postsecondary required transition IEP forms. Click here for the Spanish version or here for the Marshallese version.

Post-secondary goals in the transition plan MUST be measurable and based on transition assessments that are provided at least annually!

Predictors of Post-School Outcomes - Spanish
At this time twenty predictors of positive post-school outcomes have been identified by researchers. If students and their families, teachers, members of individualized educational program (IEP) teams, and agencies in our communities are aware of these, we can work together to include them in the planning and work we do with students to better support their goals.

Transition Assessments
Transition assessments are required annually to develop and update transition plans. There are many assessments available and we hope you will take time to research and review what is out there. It’s important to choose assessments that are appropriate for your student and that will provide the information the team needs to establish meaningful goals the student can work toward achieving! Remember that assessments should be provided on-going and can be formal or informal. Assessments can take different forms (questionnaires, documented observations, etc.), but whatever form, make sure the results are accessible and that you have documented the assessment in the transition assessment section in the secondary transition IEP. So, take a look at this list and then explore some of the tools on the Tools for Assessing page that can assist you in the transition assessment process.

Indicators are calculated measures used to assess the performance of special education programs. Basically, it’s a way to measure how well we are educating students in special education. There are four that relate to transition more than the other indicators.

Indicator 1
Graduation rate: Percent of youth with IEPs graduating from high school with a regular diploma. 

Indicator 2
Dropout rates: Percent of youth with IEPs dropping out of high school. 

Indicator 13
Post School Transition Goals in IEP: Percent of youth with IEPs aged 16 and above with an IEP that includes appropriate measurable postsecondary goals that are annually updated and based upon an age appropriate transition assessment, transition services, including courses of study, that will reasonably enable the student to meet those postsecondary goals, and annual IEP goals related to the student’s transition services needs. There also must be evidence that the student was invited to the IEP Team meeting where transition services are to be discussed and evidence that, if appropriate, a representative of any participating agency was invited to the IEP Team meeting with the prior consent of the parent or student who has reached the age of majority. 
If you would like a helpful tool that can help you meet compliance with this indicator check out the Indicator 13 Checklist. Review the questions and if you can answer yes to all parts of the eight questions, you will have a compliant plan!

From Assessment to Practice: A Model for Teachers - If you want to build quality transition plans, the National Technical Assistance Center on Transition (NTACT) identified instructional practices and predictors for improved post-school success based on the best available evidence. The model was developed to provide teachers with a process for incorporating these effective practices into the transition planning process; from transition assessment to classroom instruction.

Indicator 13 Cross-Reference Tool - Click on each Indicator 13 Checklist question to see how they correspond with transition plan components. We've updated the order of the questions to better fit our paperwork!

Quality Rubric - This rubric, when completed by a special educator or IEP team member, will help you know if your transition plan meets the requirements of IDEA through implementation of the I-13 checklist, but also will help you understand the quality of the transition plan. 

Indicator 14
Post-School Outcomes: Percent of youth who are no longer in secondary school, had IEPs in effect at the time they left school, and were:
A. Enrolled in higher education within one year of leaving high school.
B. Enrolled in higher education or competitively employed within one year of leaving high school.
C. Enrolled in higher education or in some other postsecondary education or training program; or competitively employed or in some other employment within one year of leaving high school.

Post school outcome surveys are conducted in different districts each year, one year after a student has graduated high school.

An important part of improving outcomes for students with disabilities is collecting information after they have left high school to see  what services have been used and how programs in high school may have helped them be successful. If you have a student who has recently left high school or will soon, please read more on Post School Outcomes Data Collection. We need your participation when it’s time to collect the data.

General Transition Information


IDEA requires the consideration for technology needs for students with disabilities. These could be services or devices that are defined in IDEA. When students are planning to transition into the adult world it is critical that they are aware of available technology that they can use to support them in the post-secondary environment. IEP teams (including students and families) can greatly benefit from the tools provided below:

Student Self Evaluation Matrix - The self-evaluation matrix is intended to measure and improve assistive technology transfer to higher education settings. 

Transition Skills Checklist - use this assessment to determine what skills your students demonstrate and what skills they need to acquire.

Assistive Technology Assessment Process Planner - use this process planner when classroom strategies and tools do not meet the student’s needs.

Assistive Technology Implementation Plan - use this template to develop a plan to implement assistive technology with your students.

Family Information Guide to Assistive Technology and Transition Planning - this guide will provide you with information on transition, how to ensure your students' assistive technology needs are supported in the transition from high school to adult life, and information on laws related to transition and accommodations. There are many tools and valuable resources within this guide to help include consideration of assistive technology in the transition process.

Mobile Apps to Support Transition-Age Youth - many free and low-cost apps are available to support transition-age youth with disabilities as they embark on their journey towards post-secondary education, job training, employment and independent living. This list includes apps that have been reviewed by parents and professionals and found to be useful and well-designed.


Skills to Pay the Bills - Soft skills cannot be taught in a vacuum, nor can they be acquired simply because the goal of a lesson plan indicates it shall be so. This tool has been designed with youth service professionals in mind - specifically those working with in-school and out-of-school youth, ages 14-21, on career and workforce readiness skills. The basic foundation for the structure of these activities includes convenience, cost-effectiveness, and creativity. They were designed in such a way as to be easily incorporated into current programming and/or already established curricula. 

Job Shadowing Guide - Shadowing can provide experiences that are as unique as every person who participates. For the student who has never understood the point of school, a shadowing experience can show how education can be translated into rewarding and financially secure future. For the teacher looking for new ways to motivate students, it can provide a fun and unusually hands-on experience that demonstrates the link between schoolwork and real life, answering the question, “Why do I have to learn this?” For those in the work place, being a host site can help forge personally satisfying connections with young people that could ultimately contribute to building a more prepared and focused workforce of tomorrow.

JAN Multimedia Training Microsite - The JAN Multimedia Training Microsite provides training resources for JAN's users. These materials may be used in group training or by individuals. They may easily be incorporated into larger training events. Some resources are for general audiences, some are quite specific. Also incorporate archived JAN webcasts to your training curriculum.

Self-determination can be defined as "acting as the primary causal agent in one's life and making choices and decisions regarding one's quality of life free from undue external influence or interference." (Michael Wehmeyer, 2001) Self-determination skills include being able to make choices and decisions and to set goals, but we have to give these opportunities for our students to work on  these skills. Encourage your students to set goals and to attend their IEP meetings--make sure they have a role at the IEP meeting. Self Determination is a critical piece to successful transition for all students. Below are some great tools and curriculum to help improve your students’ skills, but remember, it’s important to first assess those skills! Check out the Self-Determination assessments we have on our Assessing Tools page.

Tools for Education
Getting Help for the Transition to College
Some students with disabilities may not be totally aware of the support services available at the college level. To provide more information of how to go about getting more information when considering post-secondary education options, the Disability Services Office at NC State University created a video DVD to help ease students’ minds and to give them helpful tips and advice. The video shows a current college student receiving supports and offering help to a current high school student who isn’t so sure he can make it at college. Educators, share this video with your students and parents! It can be a great conversation starter that leads to getting the supports students need at the post-secondary level!

The site also has a "Teacher Toolbox" that provides activities for teachers to use as they help guide students in the planning process.
