Goal Considerations
• Big idea?
• Measurable?
• Realistic?
22
Goal Statement: Big Idea
• Definition: Narrative articulation of the “big idea”
upon which the SLO is based
• Characteristics:
• Encompasses the “enduring understanding”
of the standard
• Central to the content area
• Foundational concepts for later
subjects/courses (it is what the students
need to know before they can move on)
23
Sample Goal Statement
“Apply the concepts and the
competencies of nutrition, eating habits,
and safe food preparation techniques to
overall health and wellness throughout
the life cycle at individual, family, and
societal levels.”
24
25
World Language
Conjugating verbs provides clarity in
communicating.
26
27
Physical Education
Apply basic movement and manipulative
skills and concepts.

Big Idea
In Pennsylvania, there is a location that
we find our “big ideas” for curriculum

Performance Measures
• What assessments do you use in your classroom/school?
• Why do you use them?
• How could they work in your SLO?
• If your assessments do not work, what will you use to measure growth and/or
mastery?
• Will you need to design an assessment?

Section 5: Elective Rating
Element
Definition
Four levels of projected performance regarding the PI, reflecting a continuum established
by the educator prior to the evaluation period.
5a. Level
Each performance level (i.e., Failing, Needs Improvement, Proficient, and Distinguished) is
populated with a percentage range such that 0% to 100% meeting expectations is
distributed among the levels.
Given the actual performance regarding the PI, the principal or evaluator identifies one of
four performance levels.
5b. Elective Rating
This section is not completed until after performance data are collected, reviewed, and
evaluated against each Performance Indicator, and in the aggregate, against 5a criteria.
Notes/
Explanation
Provides space for the educator to articulate influences, factors, and other conditions
associated with the assigned rating as well as to reflect on purposeful review of the data.

OBJECTIVE
REVIEW PROCESS
47
SLO Process Components
The SLO process contains three (3) action
components:
1. Design (ing): thinking, conceptualizing,
organizing, discussing, researching
2. Build (ing): selecting, developing, sharing,
completing
3. Review (ing): refining, checking, updating,
editing, testing, finalizing
48
Review
Educator Groups will:
Conduct a quality assurance review for:
a. Completeness
b. Comprehensiveness
c. Coherency
52
Areas of Caution
1. The SLO is based upon small numbers of
students/data points.
2. Goals and indicators are not linked to
standards.
3. Indicators are vague without specific
performance criteria.
4. Growth and/or mastery are not clearly
defined
5. Performance measures are not well
designed or lack rigor.
6. Overall student achievement expectations
are extreme.
53
Action Planning
55
Broad Process Steps:
Leader
1. Establish SLO template completion
timeline at beginning of year
2. Review complete template
3. Conduct review meeting with
teacher
4. Agree on any revisions; submit
materials
5. Establish “mid-cycle” spot review
6. End-of-Year review with supporting
data
56
Implementation Planning
Suggestions
Who:
•
•
•
Implementation (TOT) team disseminates
information to all district level administrators
Administrators train Department chairs
Department chairs train department teachers and
grade level teachers
When:
•
•
•
Faculty meetings
Grade level meetings
In-service day
57
Implementation Planning
Suggestions
What:
•
•
•
•
SLO template and Performance Task Framework
Goal Statements
Blueprints
Review checklists
58
Considerations for Action Steps
• Provide small portions of the training modules and materials at
faculty meetings, with follow-up discussions at department
meetings
• Have departments work on common goal statements and
rationales as a part of department meetings
• Have teachers review district-level content curriculum and its
alignment with the state standards and state curriculum
framework
• Share assessment models at department and faculty meetings
• Utilize district in-service time to develop SLO and Performance
Measure templates
• Assign curriculum coaches to assist in developing SLO and
Performance Measure templates.
59
Summary
SLO evaluation focused on:
•
Applying a set of customized quality assurance
tools to ensure the SLO, along with its
applicable performance measures, were
complete, comprehensive, and coherent.
62
SLO Expectations
1.Goals are based upon the “big ideas” within PA’s
curriculum framework for the content standards.
2.Performance indicators are specific, measureable,
attainable, and realistic.
3.Performance measures should be valid, reliable,
and rigorous.
4.Performance data should be collected, organized,
summarized, and reported in a consistent manner.
5.Teacher expectations of student achievement
should be demanding.
