Traditional Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) don’t always provide the formative feedback teachers need to ensure that all students are on track. Learn how Marzano Center Student Learning Objectives keep teachers consistently informed about student performance, enabling them to make the necessary instructional shifts that help learners meet rigorous new standards.

- Tracking student progress on standards
- Reliability estimates of classroom data
- The use of data to increase teacher autonomy
