Presentation on theme: "STUDENT LEARNING OBJECTIVES (SLOs) 1 Orientation Module."— Presentation transcript:


2 Goal Design ● Build ● Review student learning objectives (SLOs) for use in guiding instruction and determining student mastery and/or growth as part of Pennsylvania’s teacher effectiveness system. Participants will: 1.Review each component used in the SLO process, including the role of high-quality performance measures. 2.Examine tools and techniques available to teachers and principals. 2 Goal & Objectives

3 Videos Describe the procedures within each of the three phases (i.e., Design, Build, & Review) Guides Provide examples and information about a process Templates Assist in developing customized material “Other Stuff” Supplements the core training materials 3 Tool Organization

4 4 Training Material Crosswalk

5 5 Training Resources SAS is the PDE website containing… the Pennsylvania content standards and other helpful PDE developed material a downloadable SLO training “packet”, including SLO Models links to Research in Action’s training platform, Homeroom Homeroom is RIA’s web-based learning platform that contains… on-line training materials, including the SLO Process Template 10 downloadable SLO training files, except the videos links to SAS portal

6 6 Assessment Literacy vs. Student Learning Objectives I need to…SLO Process Series-PA Assessment Literacy Series Start from scratchXX Only build a performance measure X Only complete the SLO Process Template 10 X

7 7 Outline of the Orientation Module Orientation Build Design SLO Process Components Review ALS Techniques

8 PDE’s Definition: A process to document a measure of educator effectiveness based on student achievement of content standards. 8 Student Learning Objective

9 Assessment Literacy Technical and operational understanding of the assessment “life cycle”, including the critical examination of statistic evidence. Goal Statement Narrative articulating the “big idea” upon which the SLO is based. Standards Targeted content standards used in developing SLOs; The foundation by which performance measures are created. 9 Terminology

10 Rationale Statement Narrative providing reasons why the Goal Statement and the aligned Standards addressing important learning. Blueprints Used to visually depict the relationship among key SLO components. Performance Indicators A description of the expected level of achievement for each student in the SLO population. 10 Additional Details (cont.)

11 Teacher Expectations-Level Four levels of projected performance regarding the PI, reflecting a continuum established by the educator prior to the evaluation period. Each performance level (i.e., Failing, Needs Improvement, Proficient, and Distinguished) 11 Additional Details (cont.)

12 12 SLO Process Components

13 Guiding Principles SLOs should: 1.Represent student performance in a specific course/content taught by the educator. 2.Align to a targeted set of content standards that represent the depth and breadth of the goal statement. 3.Contain results from only high-quality performance measures collected in an equitable, verifiable, and standardized manner. 4.Use metrics based upon two time-bound events/data collection periods and/or summative performance with defined levels achievement. 5.Include a performance indicators linked to performance measures. 13

14 The SLO process contains three (3) action components: 1.Design (ing): thinking, conceptualizing, organizing, discussing, researching 2.Build (ing): selecting, developing, sharing, completing 3.Review (ing): refining, checking, updating, editing, testing, finalizing 14 SLO Process Components

15 15 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

16 16 SLO Process Components BUILD Selecting the performance measure(s) Developing targets and expectations Completing the template Sharing the draft materials with other colleagues

17 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

18 The Orientation Module- Share the conceptual framework, resources, and tools. Discuss the components and guiding principles used in creating student learning objectives. 18 Summary
