Goal and Objective Tip Sheet; Department of PED IEP Annual Goals Checklist ComponentsYesNo Can the goal be justified based on information in the PLEP? Is it relevant to the student’s needs (So-What Test) Is it practical to the student’s needs (So-What Test) Does it state a direction of change? (increase, decrease, maintain) Does it include a baseline level? Does it contain a desired level of achievement, an expected level of growth? Is the level of expected growth appropriate and/or possible within the instructional area? Does it include a timeline of one year? It is clear and understandable (Stranger Test)? Is it free of jargon? Is it positively stated?
