About Learning Goals & Success Criteria
These are used in Assessment for Learning.
1. Help students to have a clear understanding of what they are learning & what successful learning should look like
2. Model descriptive feedback, self-assessment, & goal setting
3. Allow students to practice the skills they obtain (1st - with guidance, 2nd - with support, 3rd - independently)
What are Learning Goals?
Learning goals are concrete statements describing what students should know, understand, and be able to accomplish by the end of an instructional period (a lesson, unit, course, etc.). They list the knowledge and skills that students are required to master to successfully fulfill the overall expectations.
What is Success Criteria?
Success criteria outlines how to successfully attain the learning goals. It is written in language that is relevant to the students. They identify what we are looking for when assessing and evaluating. They outline the curriculum expectations, but in language that students can comprehend.
Co-creating the Success Criteria
It’s important to create the success criteria with your students. It allows for both the teacher and student to understand what is expected, sets the stage for descriptive feedback, self & peer-assessment, and helps to identify the next steps.
Try to answer the following questions with your students:
• What does successful learning look like?
• What should we look for during our learning?
