The Transition Assessment and Goal Generator (TAGG) is an online transition assessment with validity and reliability evidence, and it consists of Professional, Student, and Family versions. The TAGG automatically provides a norm-based graphic profile, present level of performance statement, lists of strengths and needs, and suggested IEP annual transition goals based on the identified greatest student needs.
The TAGG-HS assesses postsecondary employment and education skills of individuals with mild-to-moderate disabilities. The 34-item assessment measures student performance across eight constructs: (a) knowledge of strengths and limits, (b) disability awareness, (c) persistence, (d) interacting with others, (e) goal setting and attainment, (f) employment, (g) student involvement in the IEP, and (h) support community.
Developed through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education, Institute of Education Sciences, National Center for Special Education Research, the TAGG-A is a new transition assessment for students with significant cognitive disabilities taught to alternative achievement standards. The TAGG-A measures student performance across five constructs: (a) factors for employment and financial independence, (b) disposition and social skills, (c) academic skills for independent living, (d) technology usage, and (e) self-determination skills and behaviors.
We are proud to announce we are currently developing a new transition assessment for middle school students! The Zarrow Institute was awarded another grant from the U.S. Department of Education, Institute of Education Science, National Center for Special Education to develop, validate, and disseminate a new transition assessment for youth with mild to moderate disabiliites in middle school. More information will be provided here as the project is developed.
