After six years of development, the new on-line Transition Assessment and Goal Generator (TAGG) is ready for use and can be obtained at https://tagg.ou.edu/tagg.

Using non-academic behaviors research identified as being associated with post-school employment and further education of former high school students with mild to moderate disabilities, the TAGG identifies students’ strengths and needs, provides a written summary, and generates individualized annual transition goals matched to Common Core standards, which can all be copied and placed in the transition section of students’ IEPs.

The TAGG is an appropriate transition assessment for secondary-aged students with mild to moderate disabilities who plan to become employed and/or enrolled in further education after high school graduation.

The TAGG has three parallel versions: Professional, Student, and Family.

The instructions and items are presented in English, English audio, and American Sign Language videos. In the coming months Spanish, Simple Chinese, and translations into other languages will be available.

TAGG constructs and items derive from research-identified non-academic behaviors associated with post high school employment and education of former high school students with mild to moderate disabilities. TAGG results provide a norm-referenced graphic profile, present level of performance statement, lists of strengths and needs, and suggested individualized IEP annual transition goals, which can be copied and pasted directly into educational planning documents. The complex scoring algorithms are automatically calculated to produce the TAGG profile. Go to https://tagg.ou.edu/tagg/ to read About the TAGG and the Technical Manual to learn more about the TAGG development process and validity evidence.

Watch a short video explaining the TAGG at http://youtu.be/8frNGvi6ltg

The TAGG costs $3 per set, which includes one TAGG-Professional, TAGG-Student, and TAGG-Family version. Payment can be made by credit card or purchase order. Purchased TAGG credits may to be transferred to other registered TAGG users and will remain active for 7 years. TAGG result profiles can be accessed for seven years. All information is kept on secure high-speed severs which are backed-up daily.

Support from a Goal 5 Assessment Grant from the Institute of Education Sciences' National Center for Special Education Research combined with funds provided by the OU Zarrow Center’s endowment supported TAGG development and collecting validity evidence.
