Student Learning Objectives

1. What is a Student Learning Objective?

A Student Learning Objective (SLO) is a measurable, long-term academic growth target that a teacher sets at the beginning of the year for all students or for subgroups of students. SLOs demonstrate a teacher’s impact on student learning within a given interval of instruction based upon baseline data gathered at the beginning of the course. Each SLO includes:

  • The student population or sample included in the objective;
  • The standards the SLO will align with;
  • The assessments that will be used to measure student progress;
  • The period of time covered by the SLO;
  • The expected student growth; and
  • The rationale for the expected student growth
