Doing a tiered SGO (Student Growth Objective) can be a headache, and now the new change to having no pretest, instead a new system called Student Preparedness Grouping can be very math intensive. However, with the files attached in this folder, you will be able to complete your SGO's in less than 15 minutes and the data required and formulas created are designed to set you up for success. There might be easier ways to complete your SGO presently, but the way I designed this instructions, you will easily get a perfect score in your SGO's after the post assessment at the end of the year.
I have created a very user friendly excel sheet with all the formulas necessary to tier your students by just plugging in the data and it will yield the students tier (1, 2 or 3) right away. This file will make a two hour endeavor accomplishable in only 10 minutes. (Please make sure to read the 1 page Microsoft word SGO instructions for excel file worksheet before starting)
Attached, you will also find my own SGO completed (aligned with the criteria set out by the state and using a template from the state website) so that you can just modify the areas pertaining to yourself. I made it easy enough by marking with red the 5 areas you will need to modify. Therefore, once you complete plugging in the data in your excel sheet, finishing your SGO page will not take more than 3 minutes.Then, print away and submit to your supervisor.
The people that have already used these files have told me that they made such a complex task seem too easy and were able to finish their SGOs in less than 13 minutes. I hope everyone else finds it just as easy and if anything is not too clear please feel free to contact me.
