What is an SLO?
Student Learning Objectives are detailed, measurable goals for student academic growth to be achieved in a specified period of time (typically an academic year), and developed collaboratively by educators and their supervisors. SLOs are based on student learning needs identified by a review of data reflecting students’ baseline skills. SLOs are intended to provide educators with opportunities to demonstrate their students’ academic growth by setting rigorous, attainable goals for student achievement that are aligned to standards and to the instruction that teachers provide on a daily basis. - See more at: http://ee.dpi.wi.gov/slo/defined#sthash.S4YuzsFD.dpuf

These are goals your specific classroom and focus more on growth than attainment.
They both follow the SMART criteria.
S- Specific
M- Measureable
A- Attainable
R- Results oriented
T- Timebound
