Professional Pathways for Teachers
An SLO intro for teachers starting the new PPfT Appraisal
Welcome to SLOs!
What is it?
The Student Learning Objective (SLO) is a method of measuring Student growth and is worth 15% of your appraisal. The SLO allows teachers to set targets at the beginning of a course in an area of high need for students that can be achieved by the end. Rather than measuring if all students have reached the same attainment level, SLOs assign growth targets for each student to achieve based on a pre-assessment. The SLO is set and validated after collaboration and consultation with colleagues and administrators.
