Multiple Measures of Student Achievement

  • Building Level Data (School Performance Profile): 15%

    • Academic Achievement, Graduation/Promotion Rate, Attendance, AP-IB Courses offered, PSAT, Building Level PSSA and Keystone Assessment Data

  • Correlation Data Based on Teacher Level Measures

  • PSSA, Keystone Data

  • 3. Elective Data (SLOs)

SLO Concepts

  • Student achievement can be measured in ways that reflect authentic learning of content standards.

  • Educator effectiveness can be measured through use of student achievement measures.


Student learning objectives slo s

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


Student learning objectives slo s

Every teacher designs an SLO

Physical Education

Working Together

to Create an SLO

Collaborative development of an SLO is encouraged (e.g., similar content area or grade level teachers, interdisciplinary groups of educators)


Student learning objectives slo s

Many factors can influence the size of an SLO,

Time Frame

Course Content

Important Learning Needs

but the process remains the same…

SLO Design Coherency

What is a Goal Statement?

  • Definition:

    • Narrative articulating the “big idea” upon which the SLO is based

  • Characteristics:

    • Central to the content area

    • Foundational concept for later subjects/courses


  • Student learning objectives slo s

    Goal Statements

    • Typically addresses:

      • WHAT the “big idea” is in the standards

      • HOW the skills and knowledge support future learning

      • WHY the “big idea” is a central, enduring concept (rationale statement)

    • PDE’s SAS portal has identified “big ideas” for most content areas.

    Performance Indicators

    • General Description

      • Articulates targets for each Performance Measure

      • Includes all students in the identified SLO group

      • May include a focused student group

      • Affords opportunity to link and/or weight indicators

    Performance Measures

    • General Description

      • Identifies all performance measures, including name, purpose, type, and metric

      • Articulates the administration and scoring details, including the reporting

    SLO Process Criteria

    • SLOs should:

      • Represent the diversity of students and courses/content areas taught.

      • Align to a set of approved indicators/targets related to selected academic content standards.

      • As appropriate, provide opportunity to describe student achievement based on “growth” and/or “mastery.”

      • Be supported by verifiable data that can be collected and scored in a consistent manner.

      • Include a set of independent performance measures.


    Student learning objectives slo s

    SLO Process Steps:

    Teacher

    Identify subject and students

    Select the “big idea” from the content standards

    Establish a goal

    Identify indicators associated with the goal

    Select and/or create performance measures for each indicator

    Create performance expectations for all

    indicators

    SLO Template Criteria

    • 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.

    SLO Template Steps: Teacher


    Student learning objectives slo s

    Section 1: Classroom Context

    • General Description

      • Contains demographic information about the educational setting

      • Articulates the course, grade(s), and students the SLO is based on

      • Provides class size, frequency, and duration data

    30

    Section 2: SLO Goal

    • General Description

      • Contains a statement about the “enduring understanding” or “big idea”

      • Provides the specific PA standards associated with the goal

      • Articulates a rationale about the Goal Statement

    31


    Goal considerations

    Goal Considerations

    • Big idea?

    • Measurable?

    • Realistic?


    Big idea

    Big Idea

    In Pennsylvania, there is a location that we find our “big ideas” for curriculum

    • www.pdesas.org

    • Curriculum Frameworks Tab

    • At bottom of the page

      • Select a subject area

      • Select grade level


    Student learning objectives slo s

    • Spanish 1

  • Students will be able demonstrate effective communication in the target language by speaking and listening, writing, and reading.

    • 8thGrade Art

    • Students will demonstrate the ability to manipulate visual art materials and tools to create works based on the ideas of other artists and to evaluate the processes and products of themselves and other artists.

  • Grade 5 Library

  • Students will demonstrate the ability to use online D.P.S. databases and search engines, Britannica Elementary, Culture Grams, and Nettrekker toward support real world experiences and determining which is the best source for specific information.

    • 2a.

    • The SLO Goal Statement:

    • What’s the Important Learning?


    Student learning objectives slo s

    • Targeted content standards used in developing the SLO.

    • Arts and Humanities:

    • 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, 9.4

    • pdesas.org

    2b.

    Standards selection:

    What Standards Match the

    Goal Statement?


    Student learning objectives slo s

    • Explains why the SLO is important and how students will demonstrate learning of the standards through this objective.

    2c.

    Rationale statement:

    Why is this Learning Important?

    Grade 8 Art:

    Developing the ability to manipulate visual art materials and tools are important to the artistic creation process, as is the ability to evaluate the process and product created by oneself and others.

    Child Development (FCS)

    Understanding how children grow and develop will prepare individuals and families to meet challenges associated with raising children.
