1 Student Learning Objectives: Information for Teachers Fall 2o12
2 Guiding Questions for SLO’s What are the goals for student learning?How will we know that they were met?
3 If you don’t know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else. --Lawrence Peter

5 What is a Student Learning Objective? A goal statement for students’ learningMeasured by predetermined evidenceThat results in a growth score for the teacher.
6 Who Needs an SLO?4-8 ELA & Math Teachers will have their Growth Score provided by the StateALL other teachers need SLO’s to be created
7 Who is a Teacher? Anyone whose subject requires teacher certification Includes all subject areas,Media specialists & librariansSpeech teachers- new clarification on this one, No unless a class is assigned to the teacherAIS, ESL, Special Ed.Does NOT include:GuidancePT/OT/Counselors/School Psychologists
8 What Is an SLO Based On?Teachers of subjects culminating in a State Assessment must use that assessment within their SLOAll other subjects have assessment optionsSome teachers will need to have multiple SLO’s
9 How Many SLO’s?If teachers teach more than one group or class, their SLO’s must cover:50% or more of their studentsStarting with their largest sectionsIncluding every student in each class includedTeachers of multiple classes/subjects will need multiple SLO’s until they meet the 50% ruleK-3 teachers will need an SLO for both Literacy & Math
11 Growth Score Provided by State Teacher CategoryGrowth Score Provided by StateGrowth Score from SLOK-2 TeachersFuture Possibility1 SLO for ELA1 for MathGrade 3 Teachers1 for Math (unless teacher teaches a single subject only)Grade 4-8 ELA & Math TeachersYESN/AGrade 4-8 Science & Social Studies TeachersFuture Likely1 SLO for each subject/assessmentSLO’s must cover courses with highest enrollment until over 50% of students are includedGrades 4 & 8 Science must use State Assessments4-8 Other Subject Area TeachersNOLibrarians & Media SpecialistsYes. May have individual SLO, or may participate in team SLO with school ELA or other results
12 State Provided Growth Score SLO-Provided Growth Score Teacher CategoryState Provided Growth ScoreSLO-Provided Growth Score9-12 Regents SubjectsNO1 SLO for each area until 50% rule satisfiedMust use Regents as the assessment9-12 Other SubjectsTeachers with a Mix of Subjects/CoursesCreate SLO’s for largest courses until 50% rule metSelf-Contained Teachers(ESL, Special Ed, Bilingual)YES, if > 50% of students take 4-8 ELA or MathIf fewer than 50% take 4-8 ELA or Math,1 SLO for ELA1 SLO for Math(Unless teacher teaches a single subject area)Any Co-TeachersMust share the same Growth MeasureYES, as applicable, and as State can track teacher of recordOtherwise, for Common Branch teachers:1 SLO for Math (unless teacher teaches single subject)For other subject areas:Set SLO for relevant subject areaAny Push-In, Pull-Out Teachers(AIS, ESL, SWD, Speech)As applicable; State has record rules of dosageIf no State-provided measure:1 SLO for subject area focusOR use team approach for State Assessment
13 Teachers with Students Taking these Assessments State Provided Growth MeasureGrowth is SLO if…NYSESLATYES if > 50% take State ELA assessmentFuture possibility of State Growth measure using NYSESLATIf this is an ELA teacher, teacher will have an SLO if > 10 students take the NYSESLAT. Teacher must still have an SLO using the ELA assessment.Teacher is ESL specialist & NYSESLAT is most appropriate measurement of student learningNYSAAOnly if > 50% take State Assessment with growth scoreIf this is a teacher required to set SLO’s, then:1 SLO will use the NYSAA for evidence1 SLO will be on subject area(s) taught

15 HOW SLO’s ARE SET District Office: Has final authority over SLO’s Determines guidelines for SLO development(e.g. may require a writing portion; may stipulate that all SLO’s have a target of 85% students reaching proficiency)Determines the assessments to be used for SLO’sDetermines HEDI bands
16 How SLO’s Are Set, cont. Teachers: Principals: Pre-assess their students (in fall, or spring the year before)Propose their SLO’s based on their pre-assessment resultsPrincipals:Approve &/or revise teachers’ SLO’sEnsure comparability across content areas & grades
17 Assessment Options3rd party purchased assessments – must be from the NYSED-approved list, ORRegionally or district-created assessments&May include performance tasks, products, as well as traditional examinations
18 Pre-AssessmentsThe purpose of the pre-assessment is to give enough information to set a proficiency target for each classIt does not need to be identical to the post-assessmentThe teacher (& district) chooses the pre-assessmentPre-assessments are delivered in September-October (or at beginning of semester for semester-length courses)
19 Post-AssessmentsThe same post-assessment must be used by every teacher of a particular course & levelPost-Assessments must be scored by someone other than the teacher of record
21 NYSED SLO FrameworkAll SLOs MUST include the following basic components:Student PopulationWhich students are being addressed?Learning ContentWhat is being taught? CCSS & Other standards?Should include the most important learning outcomes.Interval of Instructional TimeWhat is the instructional period covered (if not a year, rationale for semester/quarter/etc)?EvidenceWhat assessment(s) or student work product(s) will be used to measure this goal?BaselineWhat is the starting level of learning for students covered by this SLO?Based on assessment data (which can include performance.)Target(s)What is the expected outcome (target) by the end of the instructional period?HEDI CriteriaHow will evaluators determine what range of student performance “meets” the goal (effective) versus “well-below” (ineffective) , “below” (developing), and “well-above” (highly effective)?RationaleWhy choose this learning content, evidence and target?

23 SLO’s are SMART Goals Specific Measureable Attainable Realistic Timebound
24 SLO Elements Student Population Learning Content Must address all students in the classMust have roster with names/ID’s attachedLearning ContentShould include most important learning outcomesSpecific and measureableAddresses content area standardsCommon Core Standards? National Standards?
25 SLO Elements, cont. Evidence Baseline Rationale Describe assessment task(s) or reference specific assessmentAttach or reference rubric or scoring criteriaBaselineReference & submit student scores on specified pre-assessmentRationaleDescribes WHY for thisLearning Content, Evidence & Target
26 Targets Are set collaboratively by teachers & principals After pre-assessment data has been reviewed (typically in the fall)For each SLO
27 Target Approach 1 - Growth Target Example: 85% of students will grow by 60 percentage points or more on their post-test compared to their pre-test for the standards.StudentPre-Test ScoreSummative TargetStudent A1070Student B2080Student C565Student D60Student E3090Student FThis kind of target only works if the pre-test is the same as the post-test
28 Target Approach 2 - Mastery Example: 85% of students, including special populations, will score 75% or higher on the summative assessment.StudentPre-Test ScoreSummative TargetStudent A1075Student B20Student C5Student DStudent E30Student F
29 Target Approach 3: Individualized Target(s) Example: 85% of students, including special populations, will meet or exceed their individualized target.StudentPre-Test ScoreSummative TargetStudent A1080Student B20Student C575Student D70Student E3085Student FIndividualized targets are set based on multiple sources of baseline DATA.Cannot be based just on an IEP.
30 Other Kinds of Targets Bands, e.g.: Those with baseline scores of 0-24 have targets of 65Those with baseline scores of will have target of 75+Those with baseline scores of 36+ have target of 85+
31 Matching HEDI Score to Targets Districts create rules for HEDI scores.The target set by the teacher & principal in September describes EffectivePerformance.Highly Effective*(18-20 points)Effective*(9-17 points)Developing*(3-8 points)Ineffective*(0-2 points)Student results well above the target set in September.Student results meet the target.Student results below the target.Student results substantially below the target.
32 Example: Teacher with 3 SLO’s for 75 Students Overall Step 1: Assess results of each SLO separately.17/20 pointsEffective.15/20 pointsEffective19/20 pointsHighly EffectiveStep 2: Weight each SLO proportionately.30 Students/75 Total = 40%25 students/75 =33%20 students/75 = 27%Step 3: Calculate proportional points for each SLO.17 points x 40 = 7 points15 points x 33 =5 points19 points x 27 =OVERALL GROWTH COMPONENT SCORE:= 17 points/ Effective.(round to the nearest whole number.)
33 What’s Next Districts set guidelines for SLO development Districts identify assessments for each subject area & grade levelRegional work will take place this fall to create assessments for:Music K-12Art K-12Physical Education K-12Foreign LanguageSocial Studies 6-9 and all other subject areas
34 The SLO Timeline for Teachers September/October:Verify students in your roster(s)Administer & score pre-assessmentsSet targets for each class & subjectMeet with principal for revision/approvalMidyear:Meet collaboratively to analyze progress towards targetsSpring (or end of semester):Administer post-assessmentGrowth score is calculatedMeet with principal about results
35 Keeping the Purpose In Sight: What are the goals for student learning?How will we know that they were met?
