STUDENT LEARNING OBJECTIVES (SLOs)
A Student Learning Objective (SLO) is a measurable, long-term academic growth target this is set for each student at the beginning of the year/semester. SLOs are administered in all non-tested EOC subjects and courses not listed as state tested subjects. The SLO measure is designed to demonstrate a teacher’s impact on student learning in courses not associated with state assessments. The process of creating and implementing SLO assessments have been delegated to local school districts. SLO assessments are administered as pre-and post-assessments to measure growth between two points in time. Pre-assessment scores are not count toward the students’ course grade. Post-assessment scores count toward the students’ course grade.
