    • SMART Goals
    • What is a SMART goal?
      • A SMART goal is a goal that is:
      • S Specific
      • M Measurable
      • A Attainable
      • R Results-Driven
      • T Timely / Time - Framed
    • S pecific
      • A specific goal is one that:
      • Is clear
      • Is well-defined
      • Answers questions like:
        • “ who” (who is involved?)
        • “ what” (what do we want to accomplish?)
        • “ where” (what location / area?)
        • “ when” (during what time frame)
        • “ for whom” (who benefits?)
      • A SMART goal is specific.
    • M easurable
      • A measurable goal is one that:
      • Can be measured using direct (assessments, evaluation instruments, surveys) and/or indirect (observation reports, surveys) methods
      • Will have clear indicators as to whether it has been accomplished (e.g. a due date, a numerical target, a percentage target, a yes/no assessment)
      • A SMART goal is measurable.
    • A ttainable
      • An attainable goal is one that:
      • Can be achieved – either with existing resources or with resources that must be obtained as part of the work of reaching the goal
      • Can be achieved by following a thoughtful and detailed action plan
      • Is aspirational – represents a realistic stretch
      • A SMART goal is attainable.
    • R esults-based
      • A results-based goal is one that:
      • Motivates because we have clear benchmarks that allow us to see our progress.
      • Connects are efforts to the “so what?” question.
      • Reflection can then identify what actions cause a positive impact, or for what didn’t work and why.
      • A SMART goal is results-based.
    • T ime-Limited
      • A time-limited goal is one that:
      • Has a clear “due date” and / or a realistic time-frame.
      • Has a time frame / timeline that allows for all necessary steps in pursuit of the goal to take place.
      • A SMART goal has a timeline.
    • Example of a SMART goal
      • At least 75% of parents will attend one of three Family Science Fairs that will be held in February 2006.
