SLO Template and Exemplars

Description: The SLO template is the statewide form for teachers to use for writing their SLO(s). SLO exemplars from New York State teachers are also available below and were chosen for their rigor and clear alignment of learning content, target and evidence.

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) is committed to providing district leaders, teachers, and principals support as they develop and implement Student Learning Objectives (SLOs).  NYSED will host a new series of short videos that aim to provide targeted assistance to teachers and principals of various specialties as they develop SLOs.  Additional videos will be posted throughout the Fall. Each video will focus on key objectives, including the ability to:

1. Distinguish unique characteristics of the teaching assignment and its implications for the SLO development
2. Use three guiding questions to work through key decision points
3. Complete all 8 sections of the New York SLO template
