    This is an informal assessment.  I would use this in my classroom because not not just using it as an assessment tool but for the baility to use this  while working in the classroom to increase student knowledge, and know what I needed to work on with each student for them to have the best ability to do well in the future.

    This is a great informal assessment.  It provides great data to help write effective transition goals. It helps benefit both the student and the parent.  It is a great support tool to help find the right goals for students post secondary.

    These assessments cover a variety of successful transitional skills to include communication, intrapersonal skills, self-determination, and daily living among others.  Case managers and educators alike can collect data in order to assess students abilities to manage self-efficacious living.  I like how progress monitoring is included in these assessments in order to keep the process of transition on-going as opposed to a once in a lifetime opportunity.

    This batch of informal assessments facilitates easy data collection for student preference in postsecondary training.  Planning data can be obtained in getting a big picture for postsecondary future, self-determination, postsecondary planning, academic skills, and nonacademic needs.  I like how these assessments are reproducible and can be used with students, parents, and teachers.

    This is an excellent compilation of informal assessments. It is well organized, reproducible, easy to administer and easy to understand. This tool is tremendously beneficial in assisting students and parents in identifying the appropriate supports needed to address postsecondary goals. I like that it addresses independent living and community participation in a way that can aide in the development of an appropriate and effective IEP. It surveys students for self-esteem, self-determination, living skills checklists, and daily living competencies. I like that it involves the student through assessment that help students decide what things they would like to see in their transition plan.
