Part 2 What is a SMART Goal?
What is student achievement goal setting?
Step 2:
Step 1:
Determine
needs
Create
specific
learning goals
based on preassessment
Step 3:
Create and
implement
teaching and
learning
strategies
Step 4:
Monitor
student
progress
through ongoing
formative
assessment
Step 5:
Determine
whether the
students
achieved the
goal
What are the purposes of
Student Achievement Goal Setting?
 Focus on student/learner/program results
 Explicitly connect teaching and learning
 Improve instructional practices and
teacher/education specialist performance
 Tool for school improvement
Specific
The goal is focused on learner needs.
Measurable
An appropriate instrument/measure is
selected to assess the goal.
Appropriate
The goal is within the teacher’s control to
effect change.
Realistic
The goal is feasible for the teacher.
Time limited
The goal is contained within a single
school year.
Sample SMART Goal
In the current school year, using a 24-point divisiondeveloped rubric to measure texture, form, space, color,
tone, and line (in which 20 points is considered proficient)
students scoring a level 20 or higher will advance their
skills by learning another artistic style, such as still life.
Specific: Focused on two-dimensional landscape
Measurable: Rubric used to assess performance
Appropriate: The teacher teaches the content and skills contained
in middle school art
Realistic: The goal of increasing student performance by at least
six points is realistic
Time-bound: Goal attainment can be addressed by the end of the
year with a performance task scored by a division-developed rubric
Example APS Smart Goals
Secondary Science
A minimum of 90% of all students; 66% SPED
and 75% ELL students will answer more than
25/50 questions correctly on posttest (using
released Biology SOL questions) and/or pass the
EOC Biology SOL. Students who answer greater
than 25/50 have a very high likelihood of
passing the EOC Biology SOL.
Example APS Smart Goals
Elementary Reading
For the current school year, all of my grade 1
students will make measurable growth on PALS
by increasing their scores on the word list and
spelling subtests by 5 points. In the spring 2013,
90% of my students will meet the spring
benchmark (35).

APS Revised Teacher Evaluation Process
Agenda
3. Determining Goal Attainment
Determining Goal Attainment
• Monitor progress
• Adjust as needed
What data sources would be appropriate for …
• Establishing baseline data and
determining goal attainment?
• Progress monitoring goal progress
throughout the year?
• TOOL: APS Assessment Inventory
Based on what you have learned, what do you see as
the benefits and challenges of student achievement
goal setting?
Benefits
Challenges
Common Challenges
1. Data access & analysis
– Robustness of data system
– Teacher & administrator skills
2. Sufficient & appropriate assessments
3. Writing SMART goals
4. Clarifying the acceptable amount of progress
5. Developing instructionally-based strategies
– See Marzano et al., Schmoker, Collins, Blankstein, Fullan, etc., etc….
Setting student achievement goals…
 Focuses on student results
 Connects teaching with learning
 Improved instruction in the classroom
 Contributes to school improvement
