Do you know there are predictors of postschool outcomes for students with disabilities? Do you think your school is implementing evidence-based practices that lead to positive postschool outcomes? Do you know the degree to which your school is implementing evidence-based practices?
This checklist is intended to provide schools, districts, or other stakeholders in secondary transition education and services with a framework for determining the degree to which their program is implementing practices that are likely to lead to more positive post-school outcomes for students with disabilities. The predictor categories listed have been extracted from high quality correlational research including students with disabilities. The self-assessment looks at both the degree and evidence of implementation. And as always, your local school/district data will also assist in identifying needs in the predictor assessment.
