  13. 13. Goal Considerations •Big idea? •Measurable? •Realistic? 13
  14. 14. 14 What is a Goal Statement? Definition: • Narrative articulating the “big idea” upon which the SLO is based Characteristics: • Central to the content area • Foundational concept for later subjects/courses
  15. 15. 15 Goal Statement Example • “Students will apply the concepts and the competencies of nutrition, eating habits, and safe food preparation techniques to overall health and wellness throughout the life cycle at individual, family and societal levels.”
  16. 16. 16 Goal Statements Typically addresses: • WHAT the “big idea” is in the standards • HOW the skills and knowledge support future learning • WHY the “big idea” is a central, enduring concept (rationale statement) PDE’s SAS portal has identified “big ideas” for most content areas.
  17. 17. 17 Quality Assurance Checklist • Statement is clear and concise; free of technical jargon. • Statement identifies what the performance measure is designed to measure; grade- level/subject area/course. • Statement provides insight about what the scores mean.
  18. 18. STANDARDS ALIGNED SYSTEMS • TEACHERS SHOULD GO TO THE SAS PORTAL AND REVIEW THE CURRICULUM FRAMEWORK. TEACHERS WHO HAVE A CURRICULUM FRAMEWORK CREATED AS A RESULT OF THE CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT PROCESS SHOULD REFER TO THESE DOCUMENTS INSTEAD OF GOING TO THE SAS PORTAL. • REVIEW CONTENT STANDARDS IN YOUR AREA OF CERTIFICATION. • DETERMINE “BIG IDEA” IN THE STANDARD. • VISIT THE SAS PORTAL AS NEEDED AS YOU CONTINUE TO WORK THROUGH THESE MODULES. • THE NEXT SLIDE PROVIDES FURTHER DETAILS, INCLUDING THE LINK TO SAS PORTAL. 18
  19. 19. Big Idea In Pennsylvania, there is a location that we find our “big ideas” for curriculum PDESAS LINK • Curriculum Frameworks Tab • At bottom of the page • Select a subject area • Select grade level
  20. 20. 20
  21. 21. Spanish 1 Students will be able to demonstrate effective communication in the target language by speaking and listening, writing, and reading. 8th Grade Art Students will demonstrate the ability to manipulate visual art materials and tools to create works based on the ideas of other artists and to evaluate the processes and products of themselves and other artists. Grade 5 Library Students will demonstrate the ability to use online D.P.S. databases and search engines, Britannica Elementary, Culture Grams, and Nettrekker toward support real world experiences and determining which is the best source for specific information.
  22. 22. 22 Targeted Standards Choosing Targeted Standards means: • Selecting certain standards for use with the performance measure being developed. • Identifying standards which represent the “big ideas” within the content area.
  23. 23. 23 Targeted Standards Criteria • Are a refined list of the content standards directly related to the Big Idea in the Goal Statement. • Represent the essential knowledge and skills that students are expected to acquire. • Create transparency for families and the community about what is most important for student success. • Become the identified content standards used to create the performance measures.
  24. 24. 24 Guiding Questions • ENDURANCE- will this standard provide students with knowledge and skills that will be of value beyond a single test date? • LEVERAGE- does this standard provide knowledge and skills that will be of value in multiple disciplines? • READINESS FOR THE NEXT LEVEL OF LEARNING- will this standard provide students with essential knowledge and skills necessary for success in the next level of instruction?
  25. 25. 25 Standard Id Description Rationale ACTFL 1.1 WL 1.1—Students listen and respond, engage in conversations, provide and obtain information, express preferences, emotions and feelings, and exchange opinions and beliefs. (Interpersonal) To achieve functional levels of communicative competence in a world language, students need to use the language regularly in everyday social interactions such as conversing, arguing, criticizing, requesting, convincing and explaining effectively. ACTFL 1.2 WL 1.2—Students comprehend and interpret written and oral language on a variety of topics. (Interpretive) Developing literacy in a world language is a crucial 21st century skill. Students need to develop a variety of reading and listening strategies that will allow them to comprehend, analyze and synthesize information. ACTFL 1.3 WL 1.3—Students present information, concepts and ideas in oral and written form on a variety of topics. (Presentational) Students need the ability to gather, comprehend, evaluate, synthesize and report information and ideas. The need to conduct research and consume media intended for speakers of other languages are crucial 21st Century skills. Targeted Standards Example
  26. 26. Targeted content standards used in developing the SLO. Arts and Humanities: 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, 9.4 pdesas.org
  27. 27. Explains why the SLO is important and how students will demonstrate learning of the standards through this objective. Grade 8 Art: Developing the ability to manipulate visual art materials and tools are important to the artistic creation process, as is the ability to evaluate the process and product created by oneself and others. Child Development (FCS) Understanding how children grow and develop will prepare individuals and families to meet challenges associated with raising children.
