A Student Learning Objective (SLO) is a content area grade or course-specific measurable learning objective that can be used to document student learning over a defined period of time. In essence, learning goals are established for students and their progress is monitored toward these goals. SLOs must include learning goals based on Utah Core Standards, pre- and post-assessments, and targets for monitoring. SLOs are included as part of each teacher's JPAS evaluation.
Departments and/or teams will work together to choose between using an existing SLO or finding/creating a common assessment. The process for completing an SLO will best be accomplished through the PLC process. Site Administrators will approve SLO selection. School Administrators can create a method for monitoring SLOs or the documents below can be used to complete the process.
