    11. Annual Goals • Begin with asking “If the service we are providing is effective, what will we see in the student’s behavior that tells us so?” • Purpose of goals and benchmarks are to evaluate services • Benchmarks should be statements of how far the student will progress toward the annual goal • Annual goal is really a 12 month objectives that tells you by when.

    12. Annual Goals • A goal must be meaningful • A goal is measurable • A goal guides decision-making and future planning • A measurable goal contains: • An observable learner performance (what the learner will be doing) • Any important conditions such as “given software”, or “given access to dictionary”, and • Measurable criteria which specify the level at which student’s performance will be acceptable (e.g., speed, accuracy, frequency, quality) From Writing Measurable IEP Goals and Objectives (Bateman & Herr, 2003)
