4th Learning Goals

Student Progress Qualifiers for Learning Goals

o   Beginning – Material introduced to students only - no independence expected

    • Beginning/Developing – Students are expected to be between Beginning and Developing

o   Developing – Students can work with material but not always independently (need help)

    • Developing / Secure – Students are expected to be between Developing and Secure

o   Secure – Students fully understand material and can work independently
