Learning Targets

The Beaverton School District's School Board, teachers, and administration are committed to the core ideas of a standards-based system through clear Learning Targets in all content areas at each grade level.

Standards-Based Learning

Teaching & Learning 
  • All classroom instruction and assessments are aligned to learning targets
  • Multiple opportunities are provided for students to demonstrate growth and learning
  • Formative assessment practices provide feedback focused on student growth and support improved instruction
  • Consistent scoring guides (rubrics)  determine a student's level of learning and indicate what a student must do to improve
  • Regular reporting of progress on each learning target occurs
  • Academics and behaviors are reported separately
  • The highest value is placed on teacher judgment and expertise
