Student Growth Goal

If your student growth goal wasn't tied to a class during Trimester 1, it will need to be linked to a class you have in Trimester 2. I have attached the working documents you will need to help guide you through this as a reminder from our previous conversations about enduring skills .

You have several parts to enter from the worksheet called Think and Plan Guidance Document, but please remember it is a skill over time not a unit test or about content. It should be tied to data that you are keeping in an Excel spreadsheet or Gradecam . You will need to show that data at the end of the trimester or when your student growth goal is scored with your principal. Your pre-test needs to be given at the beginning of the trimester so that you can give the post-test to the same class at the end. Please make plans to meet with your evaluating principal by November 15th to discuss your pre-test results from your selected class.

These documents will be sent out in a separate email.
