Many times, not all learning targets are relevant for every student AND many times, different students may be pursuing different learning outcomes based on their interest or post-secondary aspirations. Learning Target Plans are a great way to individualize, goal set, and ensure focus by filtering out unneeded learning targets as well as showcasing completion of a given subset of outcomes.
Common Learning Plan Scenarios
Focus for this Year (e.g.- 9th Grade vs. 10th Grade, etc.)
In multiage school, hiding middle school targets from high schoolers and vice versa
Incorporate external learning outcomes, while keeping them separate from internal graduation outcomes
(e.g.- a trade’s group set of learning targets to achieve a certification)
Stratified degree/diploma (e.g.- specialty or advance achievement)
Provide different views of learning target completion or activity
(e.g.- 4 Dimensional Graduate- one view for content, one view for skills, etc.)
Where do Learning Plans Show Up in Headrush?
Learning Plans show up in a few places within Headrush:
1. Within the Module Overview in the Learning Target Selector
2. On the respective Learning Target Dashboard
