The Teaching Goals Inventory (TGI) can help you discover something about yourself as a teacher. Created by Thomas Angelo and Patricia Cross, the TGI is an easy-to-use, self-scoring, online tool to help you discover what you value about teaching and learning. Although it is primarily used by faculty members who are developing or revising instructional goals, it also is useful for anyone teaching college courses or developing a teaching portfolio.

The TGI helps college teachers: 

  • become more aware of what they want to accomplish in individual courses, 
  • locate classroom assessment techniques they can adapt and use to assess how well they are achieving their teaching and learning goals, and 
  • discuss teaching and learning goals with colleagues.
