9 Quality Assurance Domains Priority of StandardThe content is aligned to common core, international, national, state, local or industry recognized standards.The skills and/or knowledge is critical for advancement to future coursework (i.e. if students do not master the standards, they will not be able to progress to the next level).The content reflects school and district priorities.The scope of the content is appropriate for the length of the instruction interval.
10 System Master Plan Goal All students will reach high standards, at a minimum attaining proficiency or better in reading/language arts and mathematics.School Improvement GoalTo increase the percentage of students meeting proficiency in Grade 2 by at least 12.6% in order to meet or exceed the reading benchmark of 85% as measured by mClass data.Student Learning ObjectiveAt least 80% of my students will meet or exceed the benchmark of 85% as measured by mClass data.Establish Priority of StandardI
11 Quality Assurance Domains Quality of Measure & EvidenceThe source(s) of evidence provides the data you need to determine if the target has been met.The measure(s) is aligned to the standards and provides evidence relative to the target.The measure is appropriate for the student population.The measure meets the criteria established by the state, district or school.
12 Quality Assurance Domains Rigor of TargetThe target is anchored in baseline data including historical data (i.e. district, school and student level data) and multiple measures if possible.The rationale explains how the rigor and attainability of the numerical target were determined. For example, the target is based on the past performance of students or the expectation of a year’s growth or the mastery of a standard or incremental improvement.The numerical target represents an appropriate amount of student learning for the interval of instruction.If appropriate, the SLO differentiates targets for individuals or groups of students based on baseline data so that all targets are rigorous yet attainable.
13 Quality Assurance Domains Action PlanThe selected instructional strategies support students in reaching the target for this SLO.The identified professional development supports the successful implementation of the SLO.
14 Making the Connections Frame evaluation process as part of the continuous improvement processAlign State – District - School goals with S.L.O. goalsConnect S.L.O process with other aspects of good teachingIntegrate S.L.O. training with Common Core and other curricular trainingIntegrate S.L.O. development with existing data review/analysis processesProvide opportunities for collaboration
