Pennsylvania’s
Student Learning
Objectives (SLOs)
Process
1
 To know what Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) are
 To know how SLOs fit into the larger picture of Educator
Effectiveness
 To explore the SLO Template
 To know the three components in developing SLOs
(Design, Build, and Review)
 To know where you can find the tools to develop your SLOs
 To give you time to begin brainstorming/drafting your SLO

What is a
Student Learning Objective?
Student Learning Objective
PDE’s Definition: A process to
document a measure of educator
effectiveness based on student
achievement of content standards.
10
SLO Concepts
Student achievement can be
measured in ways that reflect
authentic learning of content
standards.
Educator effectiveness can be
measured through the use of
student achievement.
Many factors can influence the size of an SLO,

SLO Process Components
DESIGN
• Thinking about what content standards
to measure
• Organizing standards and measures
• Discussing with colleagues collective
goals
• Researching what is needed for a high
quality SLO

SLO Process Components
BUILD
•
•
•
•
Selecting the performance measure(s)
Developing targets and expectations
Completing the template
Sharing the draft materials with other
colleagues
17
SLO Process Components
REVIEW
• Checking the drafted SLO (including the
performance measures for quality)
• Refining measures and targets
• Editing text and preparing discussion
points/highlights for principal
• Finalizing materials
• Updating completed SLOs with performance
data

Student Learning Objective
(SLO)
Template
SLO Template Criteria
1. Goals are based upon the “big ideas” within the content
standards.
2. Performance indicators are specific, measureable,
attainable, and realistic.
3. Performance measures should be valid, reliable, and
rigorous assessments.
4. Data should be collected, organized, and reported in a
consistent manner.
5. Teacher expectations of student achievement should be
demanding.
The SLO process facilitates a
conversation about
expectations between
educators (principals and
teachers, teachers and
teachers)
