SGO (Student Growth Objective)



This is my first year teaching Computer Science Discoveries and I have to create 2 SGO’s. I am just wondering if anyone has done an SGO for this course yet and can give some advice!


Hi, can you give some examples or details of what your SGO needs to look like?



I’m assuming SGO is Student Growth Objectives? We used to have to do SLOs - Student Learning Objectives. I’m assuming they’re about the same thing. I don’t know if it helps, but I used to use HTML as an SLO assessment. I had a Google Form assessment that students would take as a pretest and post test. They always show tremendous growth since none of them have ever seen HTML. Is this the kind of thing you mean?


Its very similar it seems, but they are focusing on achievement not growth. My district is avoiding pre and post test. I believe they are actually wanting me to use a performance task (a project).


Wouldn’t the end of chapter projects in each unit serve as a performance task? I’ve not done assessment this way for the district requirements so I’m guessing.
