New Assessments to check out

by Elaine Cook

We hope you are all surviving the year so far!  Students, families and teachers alike have officially transitioned into the new school year and are off to a great start!

We have added several new assessments for you to check on out on our Moving Students Forward website:

 

Strengths, Interests, &  Preferences Pictures

This resource can be used with students/children who are non-verbal and/or need pictures to communicate their strengths, interests and preferences.  This is just a sample of what could be created for  a classroom using a variety of resources.  Thanks for sharing this great tool!

Transition Planning – Skills for Life 

Use the skill statements to help with the development of postsecondary transition goals and their supporting activities or services.  This transition assessment should be completed by the student, parents, and educational staff. Then compare the results from the multiple sources to develop a transition plan.

This survey definitely lives up to its name!  It is a great resource to use with your students. It asks a wide variety of questions that help students think about all the components of living, learning and working. This survey helps to document what the student’s current preferences are in regards to these areas.

 Career Cluster Interest Survey      This is a handy tool to help align your students’ interests to the 16 career clusters.  It is normal that student’s interests tend to change over time.  This survey is intended for use as a guidance tool to generate discussion regarding various careers for students.  Depending on your student’s reading
ability, it can be done independently or in a one:one setting where you go over each section together.

Student Dream Sheet

The Student Dream Sheet is a good resource to help students start connecting the dots to help them reach their dreams.   It asks some basic questions that make them start thinking about what they may need to do to reach their dreams/desired outcomes.  It addresses the living, learning, and working sections of the IEP.

Hopefully some of these new assessments will be just what you’ve been looking for!  🙂
