In a continued effort to support Maine’s new Performance Evaluation and Professional Growth (PEPG) systems, the NCC provided differentiated training for the educators of Northern Maine: An introductory training to SLOs, along with a Level 2 training on SLOs. Participants gained practical and research-based approaches to implementing SLOs, and received turnkey materials to share with their colleagues. In response to requests from the field, additional trainings will also be held in April.
More than 95% of the participants indicated the information presented was based on research and theory; that the SLO training focused on strategies that could be used in their work to help students achieve higher learning goals; and that the session strengthened their understanding of effective practices for SLO implementation and helped them learn strategies for improving SLO quality.
Policy guidance and training materials are available on Maine Department of Education’s PEPG resources page.
