Important: TAG requirements for PSY courses

Some of our courses are subject to meeting specific requirements for student learning outcomes, either as part of the Global Miami Plan (GMP) foundation or Ohio Department of Education requirements, to facilitate credit transfer across institutions in the state (i.e., Transfer Assurance Guide, or TAG). If you teach one of the courses listed below, you need to ensure that your course meets the prescribed learning outcomes, which should be clearly indicated on your syllabus.

For TAG requirements, You can find more information on the ODE website. Specifically, under “Social and Behavioral Sciences,” you should use the code below to find your course and click on the link for the relevant documentation:

PSY 111 needs to meet TAG requirements (OSS 015).

For GMP foundation courses, you should be able to demonstrate how students develop skill in writing and critical thinking, as well as two other core competencies selected by the instructor. More information and a list of competencies can be found on the Liberal Ed website. Please be sure that your syllabi and SLOs clearly indicate these competencies. The GMP foundation courses in Psychology are PSY 111 and PSY 210.
