Rhode Island – The Evolution of an SLO

The Rhode Island Department of Education has created a guidance document that illustrates the “evolution” of an SLO through feedback, reflection, and revision. It includes sample SLOs, the feedback provided by the evaluator, and the final revisions made based on the evaluator’s feedback. The samples show teachers how reflection and revision can elevate the quality of an SLO; for evaluators it illustrates the kind of specific, descriptive feedback they should provide teachers during the SLO approval process.
