Transcript of SMART Goals

SMART SMART Goals are Strategic School Goal: to reduce the number of students at or below the national benchmark (bottom two bands) across the sector to 5% and to increase the number of students at proficiency (top two bands) to 55% in reading.

The team chose to use the CARS and STARS
assessment tool which separates students results into specific areas, eg:
Figurative Language
Recalling facts and details.
Main Idea Testing results showed that students understanding of the Main Idea in a text was on average at 50%.

An increase of 20% in testing results across the cohort. This figure was deemed as attainable based upon our knowledge of the students current levels, and the time in which we had to implement lessons. SMART GOALS are Results Based The team used alternate methods of data collection, from good old pen and paper to excel spreadsheets. SMART GOALS are TIME-BOUND We had five weeks to design, implement and assess a unit of work on Main Idea.

After the final assessment test, the results were an increase of 35% across the cohort.
