SMART IEP Goals Today's Objectives: We will:
Review a few IEP components
Examine elements of SMART IEP goals
Analyze example IEP goals
So... What are IEP goals based on? Based on the present level of performance, the next step of the IEP meeting is to develop a written statement about the student’s educational needs and determine annual goals.

A student’s goals provide the compass that guides the IEP Team’s decision-making (CDE, 2008). What are annual goals? Time for a quick review! Annual goals are goal statements that:
Describe an improvement from the measurable current level of performance
Reflect an area of need that is related to progress in the general education curriculum
Include a measurable level of attainment
Describe conditions under which the student will perform
(CDE, 2008) What are Objectives?

(Sometimes called Benchmarks) Objectives are skills that break a goal down into smaller units or steps. Objectives also provide a scaffold for reaching an annual goal. So... What is a SMART Goal? Specific
Time-bound SMART is an acronym to help you write measureable goals. Goal writing is a formula. Even though each goal is individualized for each student... Step 1...Personalize the goal
(i.e., Use the student's name.) Step 2...Identify the antecedent (condition) under which the student is expected to display the behavior. Step 3...Clearly describe a specific target behavior. Examples of appropriate verbs:
Point to
Transition Critical Question...
Can these target behaviors be measured? Step 4...Determine the criteria for mastery. Examples of criteria:
Accuracy (e.g., 95%)
Frequency (e.g., within 5 seconds of a prompt)
Duration (e.g., for 30 minutes)
Rate (e.g., 12 problems in 5 minutes)
Speed (e.g., completes in 20 minutes)
Rate and accuracy (e.g., 30 words a minute with 80% accuracy)
Duration and frequency (e.g., for a 20 minute period) Step 5...Determine the procedures that will be used to evaluate the performance. Step 6...Provide a schedule for evaluating the performance. Examples of schedules:
For 30 consecutive days
On 4 different tests
Every 6 weeks
By January 2012 Why do we need the schedule? Examples of conditions:
Given a short story
During a half-hour lunch period
When provided with a paper to write on

Measurable - - - Progress Monitoring
T Note that the target behaviors are linked to skill sets. Writing and using measurable goals allows you to make data-based IEP decisions each year. Remember...IEP goals are based on skill sets rather than grades. Annual goals are related to needs resulting from the student's disability that...DIRECTLY AFFECT involvement and progress in the general education curriculum. Let's look at a few goals...
