New training modules to help in writing student learning objectives


To assist educators and principals in writing high-quality student learning objectives, ODE has released a new online module to complement the four Student Growth Measure modules delivered in training sessions held throughout Ohio in November and December. This fifth module, Writing SLOs, contains two components. Module 5A guides viewers through the student learning objective writing process and provides in-depth guidance on data analysis using mock data to formulate appropriate growth targets. Module 5B supports teachers in constructing a student learning objective using available data from their own unique student population. Each of the two modules, which are divided into multiple sections, contains about an hour of recorded information. Find Modules 5A or 5B under the Additional Resources heading here.
