The Positive Learning Climates KnowledgeBase is an online resource to aid educators in nurturing school climates conducive to learning. It is organized around five elements aimed at developing a positive learning climate.

Task 5: Establish Measurable Goals

Guideline: The methods and strategies aimed at improving a school's learning climate should be associated with measurable goals. A measurable goal is one with a quantifiable outcome, a timeline for accomplishment and an assigned party responsible for its accomplishment. The timeframe for goals should be consistent with the school's overall strategic timeframe.
