What is an slo

What is an SLO?

A process to

document a

measure of educator effectiveness

based on student

achievement of

content standards.

The slo process creating a relationship

Measurement of Educator Effectiveness

The pa slo template process


What it is supposed to be:

What it is not supposed to be:

  • A format to inform strong instructional practice and strong student achievement

  • A way to measure teacher effectiveness based on student achievement

  • An opportunity for teachers to define, describe and present data on student achievement in the content area that they teach

  • More paperwork for teachers that has no meaning or purpose

  • More testing for students

  • A weak substitute for PVAAS or other standardized testing data

Central columbia school district

The SLO in PA is written to a specific teacher and a specific class/course/content area for which that teacher provides instruction.

The SLO: It’s Yours!

1 set of students 1 subject 1 slo

1 Set of Students + 1 Subject = 1 SLO

Each teacher will choose ONE set of students and ONE subject area that they teach to write ONE Student Learning Outcome.

  • Think of it as providing a water sample of your teaching or a show and tell about what you do as an educator.

Many factors can influence the size of an SLO,

  • Goals are based upon the “big ideas” within the content standards.

  • Performance indicators are specific, measureable, attainable, and realistic.

  • Performance measures should be valid, reliable, and rigorous assessments.

  • Data should be collected, organized, and

    reported in a consistent manner.

  • Teacher expectations of student

    achievement should be demanding.
