Baseline Data • Determine general preparation level . • Group students into three categories (low, medium, high). • Determine specific areas of deficit . Growth Targets • General – set a target for all students at each preparation level covering all content. Specific – set a target for all students to grow in a particular content standard. • 1 2 3 4 4 Student Growth Objectives (SGO) Teacher: 1 Subject: Sections: General Objective Grade: Number of students: Preparation Level Based on Pre-Test Score Number of Students SGO Based on Predicted Achievement on Post-Test Score Low (0-45%) 21 70% or above Medium (46-69%) 54 80% or above High (70-100%) 7 90% or above 2 3 4 5 TEACHERS The SGO Process Step 1: Choose or develop a quality assessment aligned to state standards KEY Teachers, supervisors meet to discuss and set SGO w/ principal’s approval Recommended steps for setting a good SGO Official SGO process in regulations Teachers, supervisors meet to discuss SGOs and other measures Step 4: Track progress, refine instruction September Step 2: Determine students’ starting points Practice SGO TEACHERS: SG0 By Nov. 15* Step 3: Set ambitious and feasible student growth objectives SGP Summative By Feb. 15 Adjustments to SGOs can be made with approval By end of school year Step 5: Review results and score *For 2013–14 only.
