1 1 Pennsylvania’s Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) Process

2  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 2

9 What is a Student Learning Objective? What is a Student Learning Objective?

10 PDE’s Definition: A process to document a measure of educator effectiveness based on student achievement of content standards. 10 Student Learning Objective

11 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.

12 Many factors can influence the size of an SLO, but the process remains the same. Time Frame Course Content Important Learning Needs

13 WHAT IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE:  More paperwork for teachers that has no meaning or purpose  More testing for students  A weak substitute for PVAAS or other standardized testing data WHAT IT IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE: More paperwork for teachers that has no meaning or purpose More testing for students A weak substitute for PVAAS or other standardized testing data A format to inform strong instructional practice and strong student achievement A way to measure teacher effectiveness based on student achievement An opportunity for teachers to define, describe and present data on student achievement in the content area that they teach

14 I will not be afraid. I will not be frustrated. I will not be angry. I will not be crabby. We’ve got this!!

15 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 15 SLO Process Components

16 16 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

17 17 SLO Process Components BUILD Selecting the performance measure(s) Developing targets and expectations Completing the template Sharing the draft materials with other colleagues

18 18 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

21 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. SLO Template Criteria

22 The SLO process facilitates a conversation about expectations between educators (principals and teachers, teachers and teachers)

24 SLO Template Steps: Teacher 1.Classroom Context 1a. Name1b. School1c. District 1d. Class/ Course Title 1e. Grade Level 1f. Total # of Students 1g. Typical Class Size 1h. Class Frequency 1i. Typical Class Duration 2. SLO Goal 2a. Goal Statement 2b. PA Standards 2c. Rationale

25 Spanish 1 Students will be able demonstrate effective communication in the target language by speaking and listening, writing, and reading. 8 th Grade Art Students will demonstrate the ability to manipulate visual art materials and tools to create works based on the ideas of other artists and to evaluate the processes and products of themselves and other artists. Grade 5 Library Students will demonstrate the ability to use online D.P.S. databases and search engines, Britannica Elementary, Culture Grams, and Nettrekker toward support real world experiences and determining which is the best source for specific information.

26 SLO Template Steps: Teacher 1.Classroom Context 1a. Name1b. School1c. District 1d. Class/ Course Title 1e. Grade Level 1f. Total # of Students 1g. Typical Class Size 1h. Class Frequency 1i. Typical Class Duration 2. SLO Goal 2a. Goal Statement 2b. PA Standards 2c. Rationale

27 Targeted content standards used in developing the SLO. Arts and Humanities: 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, 9.4

28 SLO Template Steps: Teacher 1.Classroom Context 1a. Name1b. School1c. District 1d. Class/ Course Title 1e. Grade Level 1f. Total # of Students 1g. Typical Class Size 1h. Class Frequency 1i. Typical Class Duration 2. SLO Goal 2a. Goal Statement 2b. PA Standards 2c. Rationale

29 Explains why the SLO is important and how students will demonstrate learning of the standards through this objective.. Grade 8 Art: Developing the ability to manipulate visual art materials and tools are important to the artistic creation process, as is the ability to evaluate the process and product created by oneself and others. Child Development (FCS) Understanding how children grow and develop will prepare individuals and families to meet challenges associated with raising children.

30 SLO Template Steps: Teacher 3. Performance Indicators (PI) 3a. PI Targets: All Student Group  PI Target #1  PI Target #2 3b. PI Targets: Subset Student Group (optional)  PI Target #1  PI Target #2 3c. PI Linked (optional) 3d. PI Weighting (optional)

31 Describes individual student performance expectation 3a. What performance measure(s) – tests, assessments– will be used to measure student achievement of the standards, and what’s the expected student achievement level based on the scoring system for those measures? 3b. What’s the expected achievement level for unique populations? (IEP, students who did not do well on a pre-test, etc.)

32 Performance Indicator Statement HS Choral Individual Vocal Assessment Task Students will achieve proficient or advanced levels in 6 out of 8 criteria of the second scoring rubric. 5 th Grade ELA DRA text gradient chart Students will demonstrate one year of reading growth

33 SLO Template Steps: Teacher 4. Performance Measures (PM) 4a. Name  PM #1  PM #2 4b. Type ____District-designed Measures and ____ Examinations ____Nationally Recognized Standardized Tests ____Industry Certification Examinations ____Student Projects ____Student Portfolios ____ Other:______________________________ 4c. Purpose  PM #1  PM #2 4d. Metric  Growth (change in student performance across two or more points in time)  Mastery (attainment of a defined level of achievement)  Growth and Mastery 4e.

34 SLO Template Steps: Teacher 5. Teacher Expectations 5a. Level Failing 0% to ___ % of students will meet the PI targets. Needs Improvement ___% to ___% of students will meet the PI targets. Proficient ___% to ___% of students will meet the PI targets. Distinguished ___% to 100% of students will meet the PI targets. 5b. Elective Rating  Distinguished (3)  Proficient (2)  Needs Improvement (1)  Failing (0) Notes/Explanation. Teacher Signature _________________________Date______ Evaluator Signature _____________________Date______. Teacher Signature _________________________Date______ Evaluator Signature _____________________Date______

35 Describes the number of students expected to meet the performance indicator criteria. 5a: Proficient 85% to 94% of students meet the performance indicator.
