The SLO Road
A SLO is a measure of a teacher’s impact on student learning within a given interval of instruction. An SLO is measurable, long-term academic goal informed by available data that a teacher or teacher team sets at the beginning of the year for all students or for subgroups of students.
The teacher(s) and students work toward the SLO growth targets throughout the year and use interim, benchmark, summative, and formative assessments to assess progress toward the goal.
At the end of the year, the teacher(s) meet with a principal or building team to discuss the attainment of the SLO and determine the teacher’s impact on student learning.
As effective teachers have done BEFORE SLOs,
teachers will meet and get to know their students.
Student Growth is NOT Student Achievement.
It does NOT mean that 100% of your students must meet and/or exceed proficiency on State tests.
It does NOT mean the 100% of your students must pass your class based on our grading scale.
It does NOT mean that 100% of your students complete every project, assignment, etc., with a passing grade.
But that certainly is a great goal for all of us!
putting what effective teachers do every school year into an ODE form and checking the results of our work to see how well our students did to meet the targets that we, as professionals, set for them.
