STUDENT GROWTH OBJECTIVES
Teacher Conferences and Approving High Quality SGOs
October 29th, 2013
Riggs Center, Camden
Objectives
• Describe the SGO timeline and principal and teacher
roles/responsibilities.
•
Understand more completely the components of a high
quality SGO.
• Identify the key areas in which SGO quality can be
improved to prepare for SGO conferences.
2
The Benefits of SGOs
SGOs:
1. Provide a useful and transparent student-achievement
performance measure for every teacher
2. Promote aligned curriculum, assessment, and standards
3. Improve student achievement when well-designed
3
Responsibility of Teachers
SGOs require teachers to:
• Be thoughtful about assessment, curriculum and
achievement
• Take ownership of the growth and achievement of their
students
• Set ambitious and achievable targets for themselves and
their students using data
4
Responsibility of Administrators
SGOs require administrators to:
• Support teachers in their work
• Set high but reasonable expectations for compliance and
quality
• Provide coaching and feedback

From Compliance to Quality

Key Components of a High Quality SGO
1. The SGO includes a significant proportion of students and
curriculum.
2. Starting points are determined using appropriate
measures that enable good learning targets to be set for
students.
3. The assessment fairly and accurately measures the
standards being taught.
4. The scoring plan reflects ambitious and achievable goals
for the teacher based on student data and the rigor and
scope of the assessment.

The SGO includes a significant proportion of students
and curriculum
Number of students in combined SGOs represents all or a large majority of
the teacher’s students.
Includes start and stop dates that include a significant proportion of the
school year/course length.
Names the NJCCCS group addressed by the SGO and references content at
the most specific level of applicable standards.
Includes a significant proportion of standards for which the teacher is
responsible during the instructional period.
Articulates how the majority of selected standards are critical to enduring
understanding of the subject area, success in future classes, and
readiness in college and career.

Starting points are determined using appropriate
measures
Multiple, high quality measures are used to thoughtfully determine students’
starting points and select standards to include in the SGO.
Pre-assessments, if used, are administered fairly and provide a rigorous and
accurate measure of the skills and content knowledge students need to succeed in
the course.
18
[c1]Use multiple measures to determine starting points.
Using a pre-assessment alone provides limited information for the teacher and makes it difficult to set targets for stud

Assessments Approval Process
• Teacher evaluates her own assessment(s) using the appropriate forms
• Teacher submits the assessment and completed forms by the deadline
and in the format required by the principal.
• Principal reviews the assessment and forms to ensure the scope,
alignment, and quality of the assessment is appropriate for the content
area and grade level.
• The principal consults with the teacher and provides feedback and/or
approval as appropriate.
• The teacher modifies the assessment if necessary and resubmits to the
principal for approval.

Two Ways to Set Student Goals
Growth and Achievement
Growth
• Students will improve 30 points between the biology pre- and postassessment
• Students will increase their performance by 10% on several measures
of fitness
• Students will increase one level on the instrumental performance rubric
Achievement
• Students will score 80% on the social studies final assessment
• Students will score 3/4 on at least 8 components of the art portfolio

The scoring plan reflects ambitious and achievable
goals for the teacher
Baseline data are used thoughtfully to set high quality targets for all
students.
Student achievement and/or growth targets are differentiated to be
ambitious and achievable for all or nearly all students.
Scoring range for “full attainment” accurately reflects a teacher’s
considerable impact on student learning. Scoring range is justified by
analysis of baseline data and the rigor of the assessment.
33
[c1]Set differentiated targets.
Setting an achievement target for the class as a whole might encourage the teacher to either teach to the middle or allow high performing studen

Next Steps
• Collect copies of 2 SGOs and SGO assessments* from every teacher
• Complete consultations with teachers
• Continue to provide feedback and support as teachers improve their
SGOs and SGO assessments
• Submit initial SGO Approval Inventory on November 7th to district
* Locally-developed assessments only
