eduCLIMBER Conference: SLOs

Making the most of the SLO evaluation conversation: data discussions and research

Writing an SLO can be an overwhelming process for teachers because it requires many elements of data literacy, assessment literacy and instructional competencies combined into one process.  This session will break down the process, look at supports that are necessary for teachers along the way and give evaluators strategies to use with their staff.  We will examine ways to coach staff in the SLO goal writing process, including the use of the SMART-G strategies.  We will examine ways we can use the variety of historical data available to write realistic goals.  This historical data includes data from current students as well as trendline data from previous, similar cohorts.  Finally, we will examine the SLO meetings and SLO evaluation conversations themselves and look at ways to get the most out of these meetings and help staff feel excited and challenged by the SLO process rather than overwhelmed and threatened.
