SCASA Announces Ad Hoc Group Student Learning Objectives Project

The “ad hoc group” of educators that is working on revised educator evaluation systems is partnered with six school districts to test use of student learning objectives during SY 13-14. Ninety-five ELA teachers and 35 math, science, and U.S. History teachers have developed SLOs using multiple student growth measures for their 4200 students. SCASA sponsored training sessions in October, and NWEA is supporting the project with comparison group reporting tools. The group will report preliminary results in Spring 2014, and follow up results after PASS scores are reported. For more information, contact Molly Spearman at (803) 798-8380(803) 798-8380 or molly@scasa.org.
