More SLO samplesMany states, especially those that received Race to the Top funding, have adopted teacher evaluationplans that require SLOs. Most states refer to them as “Student Learning Objectives” or “StudentLearning Outcomes.”There is some variation in the exact format of the SLOs by state. Some are written in broad, overarching learning terms (whole year); some are very specific and focused (unit or topic driven). Mostfollow a similar process for SLO development.This document contains an annotated list of sites that may be helpful. Teachers are encouraged to lookat the models for ideas and inspiration to craft their own SLOs with the following cautions: Your SLOs need to be approved by your evaluator so be sure to understand the localrequirements and expectations, especially in terms of alignment with school/districtgoals/initiatives/data, and the scope and specificity of the SLO.The models may refer to assessment data or other evidence of student growth that is notavailable in our district. Some are tied to local or state developed assessments or commercialproducts that we don’t have.Some models contain features that are unique to their district or state format andrequirements. Be sure to use the RSD format for your SLO goal setting.
