    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.

    This is a formal assessment.  I would use this assessment because it covers such a wide range of topics, giving a more complete view of the student as a whole and thier abilities not just academic ones but the other as well.

    I would use this assessment as more of a formal assessment.  It incorporates a lot of information and involves staying strictly to the questions included.  It is set up as right or wrong as far as answers.  It provides feedback as far as what they answer, but not necessarily how they processed and retrieved the answer.

    The Brigance Assessment is an excellent formal assessment that covers a variety of transitional skills.  I really like how it is organized categorically based on what the student needs.  It is also color-coordinated to cover academic, post-secondary, independent living, and community participation skills.  Along with the assessment, the Brigance model also comes with activities for each of the categories in order to help the case manager work with their student in each area of transition need.

    I really like the thoroughness and the organization of the Brigance Transition Skills Inventory (T.S.I.).  I like how the assessment addresses a topics such as functional reading and writing, money and finance, clothing, food and travel.  I also like how it has an added level of organization that addresses the skills needed for academic, post-secondary, independent living, and community participation.  I like that the assessment can be individualized for higher level students and that it provides activities in each category that specifically addresses a transition need that is needed by the students.
