Functional Vocational Evaluation

8f. Functional vocational evaluation is one component of a transition program that is included "if appropriate". This evaluation involves "an assessment process that provides information about job or career interests, aptitudes, and skills. Information may be gathered through situational assessment, observations or formal measures, and should be practical. The IEP team could use this information to refine services outlined in the IEP".
