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.
This tool is useful for recording the results of data collection with the goal of identifying the school's strengths and needs and proposing the core goals. It is suggested that a different analysis sheet be completed for each focus area studied.
This document summarizes the key elements of well-written goals, objectives and activities. The document includes a link to the Performance Objectives Worksheet, which is a guide on writing objectives.
This document provides specific guidelines for creating specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely goals.
