Setting goals for students
Using data to assess student progress
Adjusting instruction based upon progress
Reinforce promising teaching practices
Can be used in all subjects/content areas
Provide teachers some ownership on how they are evaluated
SLOs can be created drawing on different data sources:
ODE recommends that all teachers create at least one SLO this year to gain experience with the SLO process.
In subsequent years, teachers should create two to four SLOs per year.
SLOs are approved at the local level.
ODE recommends an existing committee.
Provide feedback: both cool & warm.
Recommend allowing 10 days for revisions.
Selecting and approving assessments can be one of the most challenging and important steps of the SLO process.
Assessments enable teachers to determine growth toward and attainment of the SLO.
*Rank order pretest scores and look for breaks in data.
*Connect pre-test data + tiered targets = expectations (show connections & accountability)
