ISTE NETS and Performance Indicators for Students


What is the instructional period covered (if not a year, rationale for semester, quarter, etc.)?
Interval of
September 2012 – June 2013
What specific assessment(s) will be used to measure this goal? The assessment must align to the learning content of the course.

1. State approved industry state assessment for Animal Care NOCTI was given as a pre-test October 2012.

2. State approved industry state assessment for Animal Care NOCTI post test will be given in May 2013.

Evidence Offers accommodations as legally required and appropriate? Yes. Students with IEPs and 504 plans will be followed as applicable.

*District will use scoring method process ensuring teachers will not have a vested interest in outcomes.
What is the starting level of students’ knowledge of the learning content at the beginning of the instructional period?

See attached roster

What is the expected outcome (target) of students’ level of knowledge of the learning content at the end of the instructional period?

Target(s) Growth: Students will meet or exceed the numeric growth goal based on the score achieved on the Pre-Test for the Industry Exiting Exam, NOCTI
Achievement: Students will meet or exceed the cut score established by the state accepted industry assessment

How will evaluators determine what range of student performance “meets” the goal (effective) versus “well-below” (ineffective), “below” (developing),
and “well-above” (highly effective)?

Rationale Describe the reasoning behind the choices regarding learning content, evidence, and target and how they will be used together to prepare students for
future growth and development in subsequent grades/courses, as well as college and career readiness.

The focus of Animal Care is developing the knowledge and skills associated with careers within the field of Animal Science. Concepts include but are not
limited to: Animal health, animal husbandry, grooming and nutrition. With this knowledge students will be successful in their post assessment and
these topics will further provide the fundamental foundations for success for the second year summative Animal Care Technology assessment. I am
confident that if students meet the targets set forth in this SLO that they will be fully prepared for the second year of Animal Care. This curriculum will
prepare students for college and career.
