Research Base For Ten Sigma's Transition Skills

In developing the Transition rubrics, Ten Sigma collected information from a variety of sources including:

  • SCANS (Secretary's Committee on Achieving Needed Skills)
  • WRC (Work Readiness Credential)
  • Workkeys (Research based certification of adult work skills)
  • CASAS (Comprehensive Adult and Student Assessment Systems)
  • World Health Organization (life skills, social skills, and employability skills)
  • Boys Town
  • Transition Teachers and Employers

The research was analyzed by special education practitioners who recommended which skills should be included in each of the four program levels. The program was pilot-tested in a variety of settings and is constantly updated, particularly as the expectations of Indicator 13 become clearer.
