Self-Determination Assessment Tools
The ChoiceMaker Self-Determination Assessment is a curriculum-referenced tool that measures students' self-determination skills and progress in the ChoiceMaker Self-Determination Curriculum. Educators complete a 5-point Likert scale response for each of the 62 items across the student skills and opportunities at school sections.
The AIR Self-Determination Assessment focuses on two main components: Capacity and Opportunity. Capacity refers to the knowledge, abilities, and perceptions which allow the student to be self-determined. Opportunity refers to the student's chances to use their knowledge and abilities. The AIR Self-Determination Scale is available free of charge in a variety of forms: student form, (Spanish) student form, parent form, and educator form.
The ARC Self-Determination Scale was developed by Dr. Michael Wehmeyer and colleagues to measure strengths and weaknesses of adolescents with disabilities, facilitate student involvement in educational planning and instruction to promote self-determination as an educational outcome, and assess student self-determination skills for research purposes.
