These editable checklists of 8th grade standards allow students to set goals, self-assess, and keep track of their learning. The learning targets are written as "I can..." statements in student-friendly language. Students will rate themselves as limited mastery (1), partial mastery (2), or mastery(3) for each learning target in a unit. This is perfect for standards-based grading or student self-reporting grades.

All 8th grade standards are covered in 10 units. There is a place for students to write a goal at the beginning of the unit. They can use the checklists to track how they are doing at reaching their goal.

Teachers, you can use these checklists as record keeping for your students. Each time you give them a formative assessment, mark or have them mark their mastery level for the "I can..." statement and then have them attach the assessments to the checklist.

Because you can download this product as a Google Doc, you can edit the "I can..." statements, the order of the units, or modify the goal setting any way you want to fit your needs.

These are the same learning goals found for display in the 8th Grade Math Learning Targets "I can" Posters. I hope you love it and your students learn it!
