Video time: 5:14


SLOs are typically started within an activity by clicking a step.

If an SLO activity is not available, an SLO can also be started from the Goal Planning page.

Begin at the home page.

Scroll down to goal summaries.

00:23 And click the blank note to open the Goal Planning Page.

Click Student Learning Objectives to open SLOs.

If you wish to work on a previous year’s SLO, use the menu at right to select it.

00:41 To start a new SLO, click the Add first Student Learning Objectives link.

When the SLO form opens, complete the form fields as required by your district or state to identify, describe and categorize the assessment.

The fields available vary by state or district, so your view may be different.

01:02 To enter a name for the SLO, click the Untitled – name this SLO field.

When you begin to type, the placeholder text disappears and is replaced by your entry.

The Details section offers a number of text fields that explain and describe the details and parameters of your student learning goals.

Notice the Details section is collapsible.

Complete the fields according to your state’s or district's guidelines.

The fields expand as you type to accommodate your text.

01:46 The measurement fields sit below the details sections.

Choose the type of measure you will use to assess your students’ progress.

You may see additional fields to provide more information about your measure.

Complete these as required by your state or district.

02:16 The Criteria for Rating fields are used to describe the criteria required to meet a rating level.

These fields may be pre-populated for you.

If overwriting is enabled by your district, you can modify the fields.

Just click the EDIT button, and enter your rating descriptions in the fields.

Remember to click SAVE to save your changes.

Some states and districts use multiple measures.

If your state or district allows the use of multiple measures, you can click Add another Measure to add a new measure.

Measurement related fields display.

Complete them as shown before.

03:11 You can delete a measure by clicking the delete option to the right.

If your process uses weightings for SLOs and/or measures, you can view and adjust the weights at the top of the form.

The system manages the weights to ensure the combined weight equals 100%.

Detailed directions for adjusting weights are provided in other support materials – click the link at the end of the video.

03:40 When you’re done, click Save this SLO to save your new SLO, so you don’t lose any of your work.

You may return to your SLO and edit measures as often as needed until your Observer approves it.

03:56 If you wish to add another SLO, click Add another SLO.

The new SLO fields open below.

Complete the fields and save.

04:23 If you would like to remove an SLO, you can click the Remove this SLO button.

Then click Yes, remove this SLO in the dialog box to complete the process.

When you’re finished with the assessment and are ready to submit it for approval, click Set Objectives & Request Approval.

Please remember that once your measure is approved, it is locked from editing, unless your observer unlocks it.

This concludes our walk through of the process of creating SLOs.
