Why are Goals Important?
“The introduction of specific, measurable goals
is among the most promising yet underused
strategies we can introduce into school
improvement efforts. Clear, measurable goals
are the center to the mystery of school’s success
mediocrity, or failure”.
Results: The Key to Continuous School Improvement (1996, p.18)
Mike Schmoker
Why are Goals Important?
“If you don’t know where you are going ,
you’ll end up someplace else”.

“In the absence of clearly defined goals,
we become strangely loyal to performing
daily acts of trivia”.
-Unknown
“Most people aim at NOTHING in life

How to Build a SMART
Strategic/Specific
The team focuses on skills that are essential in
the given content or grade level.
Objectives are concrete, detailed, focused, and
well defined.
Diagnostic Questions
• What exactly are we going to do, with or for
whom?
• What strategies will be used?
• Is the objective understood?
• Is this an important thing for them to know?
• Is it clear what needs to happen?
• Will this objective lead to the desired results?
Measurable
• Measurement source is identified and we will
to able to track the results
of our actions, as
.
we progress towards achieving the objectives.
Diagnostic Questions
• How will we know that the change has
occurred?
• Can these measurements be obtained?
Attainable
• Objectives need to be attainable. If the
objective is too far in the future, we’ll find it
difficult to keep motivated and to strive
towards its attainment. Objectives still need to
stretch us, but not so far that we become
frustrated and lose motivation.
Diagnostic Questions
• Can we get it done in the proposed
timeframe?
• Do we understand the limitations and
constraints?
• Can we do this with the resources we have?
• Has anyone else done this successfully?
• Is this possible?
Results Oriented
Always use data to build your goals!
The objective should be challenging, realistic,
and also relevant to your students. They may
appear optimistic initially and as you develop
strategies to achieve them, then they become
realistic.
Diagnostic Questions
• How will we know they have met the goal?
• What will the learning/behavior outcome look
like?
• Is the goal focusing on what the student will
learn rather than what the teacher will do?
Time-Bound
• Set deadlines for the achievement of the
objective.
• Deadlines create the all important sense of
urgency.
Diagnostic Questions
• When will this objective be accomplished?
• Is there a stated deadline?
