The Transition Planning Inventory–Second Edition: Computer Version (TPI-2:CV) provides school personnel with a systematic way to address critical transition planning areas that are mandated by the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act of 2004 and to account for individual students preferences, interests, strengths, and needs. Key information is gathered from students, parents, guardians, and school personnel through the use of rating scales and open-ended questions.
The TPI-2:CV can serve as the main vehicle for identifying transition needs or complement existing procedures that are being used in a school district. In many cases, it can serve as a framework for acquiring more detailed assessment information. The most important outcomes are to identify transition preferences, interests, strengths, and needs regardless of methodology; develop necessary plans; and act on resultant goals.
The TPI-2:CV contains six basic forms. New to the TPI-2:CV are two student interests and preferences forms. The first form is used at the beginning of the transition planning process and the other form is used closer to the time when the student is leaving school.
In addition, the TPI-2:CV maintains the three key rating forms (student, school, home). A Profile and Further Recommendations Form provides a way to display the results obtained from the individual rating forms and plan any further assessments that might be needed. The student, home, and school rating forms now have 57 items; the Student Rating Form and Home Rating Form are written at a lower readability level than the School Rating Form.
Informal Assessments for Transition Planning–Second Edition (included with the TPI-2 print version) is a recommended resource that contains 818 sub-competencies for the 57 TPI-2:CV items. The resource also contains 52 informal instruments (with directions on how to use the instrument) that are related to the 57 TPI-2:CV items. The purpose of the book is to provide a way to confirm transition preferences, interests, strengths, and needs to enhance transition planning. This book is not included with the TPI-2:CV, but can be purchased separately: Informal Assessments for Transition Planning–Second Edition #14167
