From using data to determine a district’s or school’s greatest area of need to creating a SMART goal with a singular focus, More than a SMART Goal discusses how to set a data-informed, high-priority SMART goal. However, having a goal is but one small part of being SMART about improvement. This book goes beyond merely setting the goal and shows the reader how to properly use the SMART goal process to effect successful change.

This book provides a roadmap to follow to make SMART goals really smart. The authors reinterpret complex statistical procedures as practitioner-friendly tools and provides example that clarify how to use these tools effectively at the regional, school, and school team levels.

The book includes:

  • Five guidelines for system improvement

  • A SMART process for professional learning

  • Practical tools and processes designed to bring coherence, measurement and focus to instructional planning
