AIR Self-Determination Assessment (Zarrow Center)
The American Institutes for Research (AIR), in collaboration with Teachers College, Columbia University in New York City, developed the student, parent, and educator versions of the AIR Self-Determination Assessments with funding from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs.
The AIR Assessments measure two broad self-determination components: Capacity and Opportunity. Capacity refers to the student’s knowledge, abilities, and perceptions that enable them to be self-determined. Opportunity refers to the student’s chances to use their knowledge and abilities.
This assessment is available in the following formats:
- Air Self-Determination Scale – – Student Form
- Air Self-Determination Scale – – Student Form (in Spanish)
- Air Self-Determination Scale – – Educator Form
- Air Self-Determination Scale – – User Guide
The AIR Self-Determination Assessments are available for you to use, free of charge from the Zarrow Center website.
