One of the National Secondary Transition Technical Assistance Center's (NSTTAC) tasks is to identify the evidence-based practices for the field of secondary transition. To do this, NSTTAC's review of literature has been conducted in two parts. In Part I, evidence-based practices based on quality experimental (group and single subject designs) studies were identified. However, while the evidence-based practices were designed to teach students specific transition-related skills, to date, the experimental literature has not attempted to measure the impact of these skills on post-school outcomes. As a result, in Part II, the review was expanded to include rigorous correlational research in secondary transition to identify evidence-based predictors that are correlated with improved post-school outcomes in education, employment, and/or independent living. Here are findings and resources from the review of correlational research.
