Description: This webinar will address how to develop an SLO that uses the NYSAA as the summative assessment. The video walks through the development of an SLO using the 4th and 5th grade ELA NYSAA as the summative assessments. A sample SLO using the NYS SLO template along with a sample student roster accompany this webinar to better illustrate the application of the process outlined within the video.

In particular, this webinar examines the identification/development of:

  • CCLS-aligned Learning Content
  • Academic Performance Targets
  • HEDI Rating Chart

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) is committed to providing district leaders, teachers, and principals support as they develop and implement Student Learning Objectives (SLOs).  NYSED will host a new series of short videos that aim to provide targeted assistance to teachers and principals of various specialties as they develop SLOs.  Additional videos will be posted throughout the Fall. Each video will focus on key objectives, including the ability to:

1. Distinguish unique characteristics of the teaching assignment and its implications for the SLO development
2. Use three guiding questions to work through key decision points
3. Complete all 8 sections of the New York SLO template
