```STUDENT LEARNING OBJECTIVE (SLO) PROCESS TEMPLATE
SLO is a process to document a measure of educator effectiveness based on student achievement of content standards. SLOs are a
part of Pennsylvania’s multiple-measure, comprehensive system of Educator Effectiveness authorized by Act 82 (HB 1901).

2a. Goal Statement
Math: Students will use appropriate strategies to solve and represent algebraic equations.
2b. PA Standards
M7.D.2.1.1 & M7.D.2.2.1
2c. Rationale
Writing and solving basic equations is a necessary component of pre-algebra and one of the
building blocks that students will need as they progress into higher level math.
3. Performance Indicators (PI)
PI #1
(1) Pre/Post Assessment
(2) Students will be given a pre and post assessment consisting of 5 equations of varying
degrees of difficulty to determine growth over the course of the unit. Students will
solve the equations on paper and enter their answers into ActivExpressions.
3a. PI Targets: All
Student Group
PI #2
(1) Common Unit Assessment
(2) Students will achieve a score of 70% or higher on the common unit assessment
covering equations.
PI #3
(2) Using the Educreations iPad app, students will solve and submit three equations (of
varying degrees of difficulty) over the course of the unit.

PM #1 – Growth Measure Assessment on
equations (Pre and Post)
PM #2 – Common Unit Assessment
PM #1 – Measure the growth of students’
ability to solve equations over the course of
the unit.
PM #2 – Measure student ability to
demonstrate mastery of equations through
written assessment.
PM #3 – Measure student ability to
demonstrate proficiency with solving
equations through written assessment and
verbalization (they will be recording
themselves describing the steps for solving
equations).

Needs Improvement
60% to 69% of
students will meet the
PI targets.
Proficient
70% to 89% of students
will meet the PI targets.

Notes/Explanation
The common unit assessment will be used to as the main indicator
of student mastery of the selected skill. The pre and post assessment
will be used to measure growth, even if mastery is not attained on
the CUA. The student created videos will serve to move students
into the distinguished category, as they will not only need to
demonstrate the process for solving equations, but also explain in
words the rationale and reasoning for each step that they do.
