Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) are measurable goals set by teachers for their students at the start of a course or period of study and are approved by administrators. They must target the specific learning needs of students, while focusing on specific local, state or national standards that require emphasis based on a thorough review of available data. Within each SLO, teachers must specify a growth target - a quantifiable amount of student learning usually measured as growth between pre-assessment and post-assessment.

SLOs are measurable goals that teachers set for their students at the start of a course or period of study and are approved by administrators.

SLOs target the specific learning needs of students, focusing on specific local, state, or national standards that require emphasis based on a thorough review of available data. 

Within each SLO, teachers specify a growth target—a quantifiable amount of student learning expected by the end of the course, usually measured as growth between pre-assessment and post-assessment.

Teachers will need to write an SLO that includes the students in your primary teaching responsibility.  A supporting teacher (such as Title I or special education) will develop an SLO that includes the majority of the students in their teaching load. Many students will be on both the classroom teacher’s roster and the supporting teacher’s roster.

Administrators will conference with teachers and review the draft SLO.
