The group agreed to use the document “Using baseline data and information guidance” as the recommendation for preparing the needs assessment portion of the SLO form.
We agreed that pre- and post-test SLOs are only appropriate in a few instances where student outcomes are expressible on a learning continuum. Pre-tests over content or skills that are new for students are not appropriate.
A timeline for activities will be shared with all staff and administrators.
The group will discuss SLO targets for non-instructional staff at the next meeting.
The group will discuss guidance on rigor for targets and instructional periods at the next meeting.
The next meeting will be held at 3:00 PM on September 27.
