Indicator 13 Checklist

In order to help states collect data to meet Indicator 13 of the Part B State Performance Plan and Annual Performance Report, as required by the United States Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), National Secondary Transition Technical Assistance Center (NSTTAC) has developed two checklists which can be used. Both checklists were approved for this purpose by OSEP.

Ohio Indicator 13 Checklist
Ohio’s version of the NSTTAC Indicator 13 Checklist is designed to help district staff review the secondary transition plan components of their IEPs.

NSTTAC Indicator 13 Checklist: Form A
This single column form is designed to meet the minimum requirements for collecting and reporting data on Indicator 13 of the Part B State Performance Plan and Annual Performance Report. It allows a school, district, or state to review the data for each item simultaneously across all postsecondary goal areas.

  • NSTTAC Indicator 13 Checklist: Form B 
    This multiple column form meets the requirements for collecting and reporting data on Indicator 13, allows a school, district, or state to more deeply analyze professional development and program change needs by providing data on each item for each postsecondary goal area.

Web-based Examples for Indicator 13 Checklist

Purpose: The subsequent "Examples and Nonexamples" are intended as a training resource for state and district personnel responsible for (a) collecting data for the Part B Annual Performance Report Indicator 13 and (b) improving performance of districts on Indicator 13. The document is also intended as a resource for practitioners as they develop Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). The examples are intended to guide personnel in developing IEPs that adequately meet the requirements of Indicator 13: "Percent of youth aged 16 and above with an IEP that includes coordinated, measurable, annual IEP goals and transition services that will reasonably enable the child to meet the postsecondary goals" [20 U. S. C. 1416 (a)(3)(B)]. The nonexamples are intended to illustrate components of the IEP that do not meet the minimum requirements of this Indicator.

Background: The document has been developed primarily by NSTTAC staff and is based on the requirements of IDEA 2004 and its 2006 regulations, as well as knowledge of accepted best practice. The document reflects questions and input on Indicator 13 from practitioners and other TA providers in the area of secondary transition, including members of NSTTAC's expert panels and advisory board, as well as state and local secondary transition service providers through informal feedback (e.g., after presentations on Indicator 13).

This document was approved by the U.S. Department of Education, OSEP.
