Prince, Angela M. T.; Hodge, Janie; Bridges, William C.; Katsiyannis, Antonis – Career Development and Transition for Exceptional Individuals, 2018
Youth with disabilities have consistently poor postschool engagement outcomes in employment and postsecondary education and training. At least once every 6 years, states are required to submit a State Performance Plan in which they report performance on the progress of students with disabilities (20 U.S.C. 1416(b)(1)). Indicator 14 requires states…

Burnes, Jennifer J.; Martin, James E.; Terry, Robert; McConnell, Amber E.; Hennessey, Maeghan N. – Career Development and Transition for Exceptional Individuals, 2018
We conducted an exploratory study to investigate the relation between nonacademic behavior constructs measured by the "Transition Assessment and Goal Generator" (TAGG) and postsecondary education and employment outcomes for 297 high school leavers who completed the TAGG during their high school years. Four of eight TAGG constructs…

Cmar, Jennifer L.; McDonnall, Michele C.; Markoski, Kasey M. – Career Development and Transition for Exceptional Individuals, 2018
Youth with deaf-blindness have difficulty transitioning to adulthood and experience poor employment outcomes, yet research on this population is limited. To identify predictors of postschool employment outcomes for transition-age youth who are deaf-blind, we conducted multiple logistic regression analyses using data from Waves 1 through 5 of the…

Petcu, Stefania D.; Van Horn, M. Lee; Shogren, Karrie A. – Career Development and Transition for Exceptional Individuals, 2017
This study conducted a secondary analysis using data from the "National Longitudinal Transition Study-2" (NLTS-2) to examine the degree to which three of the four essential characteristics of self-determination (autonomy, psychological empowerment, and self-realization) predict enrollment in, and completion of, postsecondary education…

McConnell, Amber E.; Martin, James E.; Herron, Jason P.; Hennessey, Maeghan N. – Career Development and Transition for Exceptional Individuals, 2017
Gender differences have been found in post-school outcomes of students with disabilities, yet these differences are rarely examined. To determine whether male and female high school students with disabilities scored differently in non-academic behaviors known to affect post-school education and employment measured by the Transition Assessment and…

Shogren, Karrie A.; Garnier Villarreal, Mauricio; Dowsett, Chantelle; Little, Todd D. – Career Development and Transition for Exceptional Individuals, 2016
This study conducted secondary analysis of data from the National Longitudinal Transition Study-2 (NLTS2) to examine the degree to which student, family, and school constructs predicted self-determination outcomes. Multi-group structural equation modeling was used to examine predictive relationships between 5 student, 4 family, and 7 school…

Mazzotti, Valerie L.; Rowe, Dawn A.; Sinclair, James; Poppen, Marcus; Woods, William E.; Shearer, Mackenzie L. – Career Development and Transition for Exceptional Individuals, 2016
The purpose of this systematic review was to (a) systematically review the literature to identify National Longitudinal Transition Study-2 secondary analyses articles published since 2009 that met the quality indicators for correlational research, (b) further extend the findings of Test et al. by identifying additional evidence to support the…

Rowe, Dawn A.; Alverson, Charlotte Y.; Unruh, Deanne K.; Fowler, Catherine H.; Kellems, Ryan; Test, David W. – Career Development and Transition for Exceptional Individuals, 2015
Although there are many activities (e.g., transition services), derived from correlational research, that occur while students are in school that increase the likelihood of positive post-school outcomes, many teachers continue to provide services shown to have little to no effect on outcomes of students with disabilities. The purpose of this study…

Lombardi, Allison R.; Kowitt, Jennifer S.; Staples, Frank E. – Career Development and Transition for Exceptional Individuals, 2015
Considered a non-academic factor that is not necessarily measured by academic indicators of college and career readiness (e.g., grade point average, college admissions exams scores), critical thinking is an important aspect of 21st century learning and thus should be embedded into secondary school instruction and assessment. In this study,…

Sima, Adam P.; Wehman, Paul H.; Chan, Fong; West, Michael D.; Leucking, Richard G. – Career Development and Transition for Exceptional Individuals, 2015
This study explores non-modifiable risk factors associated with poor post-school competitive employment outcomes for students with disabilities. A classification tree analysis was used with a sample of 2,900 students who were in the second National Longitudinal Transition Study-2 (NLTS2) up to 6 years following school exit to identify groups of…

Papay, Clare K.; Bambara, Linda M. – Career Development and Transition for Exceptional Individuals, 2014
A number of best practices are recommended by researchers and professionals in the field of transition to improve postschool outcomes for youth with intellectual disabilities. This study analyzed data from the National Longitudinal Transition Study-2 to examine whether best practices are predictive of postschool outcomes. The combination of five…
