When goal setting is viewed as one of 7 Actions of Assessment for Learning rather than an isolated event, we can go beyond good intentions and hopes of improvement. When we know where we’re going, what success looks like, and receive feedback in relation to that success criteria, we can set goals and self-monitor our way to success. This module focuses on goal setting that is realistic, practical and possible for K - 12 Teachers and Leaders.

It is important to thoughtfully plan the evaluation process that will be used before the reporting period. We evaluate what we value; and we value what we evaluate. In this course, six principles of evaluation will be shared, along with practical examples of ways that teachers and leaders are evaluating and reporting the learning of others.
