SGOs can be classified as “general” or “specific.” However, in some cases, the line between these is blurry. It is better to think of general and specific SGOs being on a continuum.


  • Broad
  • Includes a significant proportion of the curriculum and key standards for a given course
  • Includes all, or a significant number, of a teacher’s students
  • Focused
  • Includes a particular subgroup of a teacher’s students, and/or
  • Includes specific content or skill
