Transcript of Learning Objectives & Success Criteria

Learning Objectives:
Success Criteria
(What should you be able to do at the end of this presentation?)
1) Students start the process of connecting new learning to previous knowledge (all new learning requires a foundation of prior knowledge-
Brown & Roediger III

2) Students are empowered to have more ownership over their learning, resulting in more engagement in the learning process

3) Explicit success criteria is the foundation for and enables more effective feedback, feedback, feedback for both the student and instructor

The Difference
Learning Goals
Learning Goal = The target
(Defines what learning is intended)
Where do we go from here?
In each week,
Learning Objectives & Success Criteria
"What do we want students to know?"
"What do we want student to be able to do?"
Understand the difference between a learning objective and a success criteria
Understand the potential impact to students of explicitly stating the learning objectives and success criteria

(What are we going to learn about today?)
You will be able to:

Write learning objectives for each week of material
Write success criteria for each piece of instruction in your course
Use the success criteria to determine whether a student has been successful in achieving the learning
WHY does all this matter? Why do you care?
Note: Feedback has a .72 effect size on student achievement according to Hattie (.40 = 1 year's growth).
If students do not know what the success criteria is, is it reasonable to think they will be able to complete any tasks/activities to your satisfaction?
"In order to succeed in their learning, students need to take responsibility for that learning." - Glasson
"Success criteria, when known, examined, and referred to by students, to improve their achievement, are an integral part of a student's learning behavior." - Glasson
Success Criteria
Broad statements
General intentions
Describe what is to be learned
Connect to “big ideas” and prior learning
Often not measureable

Describes what success looks like when the learning goal is reached

Success Criteria = The arrows
(Helps achieve the target and demonstrates mastery)
Add an objectives page.
Include learning objectives/targets for the week.
In each lesson/learning activity,
Include the success criteria that will be specifically and measurably assessed.
Remember, success criteria are explicitly stated and is what students are expected "to do" to be successful.
This is what success looks like!
It is difficult for a student to know how they are progressing toward a benchmark if there are not measureable, specific criteria.
Success criteria provide opportunities to provide high quality, descriptive feedback to improve student learning.
Through feedback, students and instructors are provided with precise information about what they are doing well, what needs improvement, and the specific steps needed for improvement.
