Student Outcome Goals

Student Outcome Goals describe what students know and are able to do. They result from adult inputs, adult outputs, student inputs, and student outputs. Student Outcome Goals include a baseline, target, population, and deadline. They challenge the organization and require adult behavior change. A board's student outcome goals are the superintendent's first priority for resource allocation. Goal Progress Measures (GPMs) are specific graph-plottable indicators used to determine if the goal is likely to be met or not. GPMs include a baseline, target, population, and deadline, are predictive of the goal, and influenceable by the superintendent.
