Assessment for Effective Intervention, v32 n3 p143-159 2007
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 mandates that students with disabilities graduating or aging out of the P-12 school system be provided with a summary of academic achievement and functional performance (SOP). The SOP should provide the student with one document that summarizes available formal and informal assessment data. This article presents an overview of the SOP, as well as an example SOP for a hypothetical student. The SOP form used in this article is based on the template developed by the National Transition Assessment Summit, which has been ratified by seven national and international professional disability organizations.
