SLO Timeline
• September 25- Sample SLOs were sent to MSDE.
• October 3- Pilot School teachers received an
overview of SLOs and support in writing them
from DOI staff.
• October 8 and 9- Principal Retreats focusing on
SLO development- (Coordinators & IFs provide
support.)
• By October 31- Pilot School teachers have met
with their principals to have their SLOs approved.
• By ????- All teams at all schools will develop one
team/department SLO.

Student Learning Objective.
A specific,
rigorous, long-term goal for groups of students
that represents the most important learning
during an interval of instruction.
Determined in consultation with evaluator
Flexible and job-specific
 Data-rich process
Example: 100% of (first grade) students will
advance on their developmental checklist as
measured by the end of year Howard County
Reading Behaviors Checklists.
A Student Learning Objective (SLO) is…
Based on the
most current
student data
Focused on
the most
valuable
learning
Aligned to
current
curriculum
standards
…an instructional
goal… for specific
students…for a
specific time
interval
Adapted from New York State District-wide Growth Goal Setting Process – Road Map for Districts
Specific and
measurable
Positive
Outcomes
Uses data to
target students’
learning needs
increasing rigor
and
performance
Allows for
comparable and
fair measures of
student learning
Informs and
drives success of
LEA/School
priorities and
needs
When SLOs fully
support the goal of
increasing student
achievement for all
students…they have
the most impact.
Becomes an
integral part of
successful
educators’
practice
Provides
accountability
for student
learning and
student growth
Increases
strategic and
systemic
decisionmaking
Adapted from New York State District-wide Growth Goal Setting Process – Road Map for Districts
Sample SLOs
Pilot teachers will create SLOs in two of the
following areas:
•
•
•
•
Literacy
Mathematical Practices
Creative Problem Solving
Content
Other teachers create one SLO as a
team/department by ?????.

Points to
Remember
Student Learning Objectives
1. The samples on the
Transition to the
Common Core wiki are
drafts.
2. Teachers need to create
two SLOs from different
indicators.
3. The due date for
creating one SLO will be
extended.

“If properly implemented,
student learning objectives help teachers
bring more science to their art,
strengthen instructional support
to the classrooms, and
improve the quality of the outcome.”
