Ratings & Reviews
I ordered this transition planning assessment and have been using it to assess some of my students. I really like all the skills that are assessed in this inventory but I have not figured out how to administer it to numerous students in a timely manner. The test covers a wide range of topics including functional reading and writing, money and finance, clothing, food, travel etc. I like all of the wide range of topics tested. The test also includes extra activities for higher level students.
I have not used this but watched the demo on line. It looks like a good assessment to include in the evaluation process. This would not be one that I would make as part of the curriculum, but make it a more formal assessment. I think it would be of value to purchase and use.
