Using historic evidence, diagnostic data, and other knowledge of students and the community, the educator sets meaningful student goals that are ambitious and feasible.
Successful data-literate educators have clearly articulated goals for students. Although the goals may vary widely, they have a few common components:
Have students met the goal? How specific is the plan for measuring students’ achievement of that goal?
The goal should be both aspirational—When it is achieved, will students have achieved something remarkable? —and feasible—Is there a real chance that students will meet the goal, with hard work and commitment?
Will this goal make a difference for students? Will students and their families be invested meeting in the goal? Why?
To earn the micro-credential Setting Goals for Students, you should provide relevant teaching context (optional), submit two goals, and demonstrate how the goals meet the characteristics common to effective goals.
Please use the template at http://bit.ly/1Ld420E to submit two student goals and evidence that they are measurable, ambitious and feasible, and meaningful.
Your goals will be assessed according to the rubric below. You must earn a (3) Proficient or (4) Exemplary score on this portion of the submission in order to earn the micro-credential.
