Upon creation of a new SLO, the system will automatically set the SLO status to ‘Draft’. This means that teachers may come back and work on their SLO at any time. Principals will not see SLOs that are in ‘Draft’ status. SLOs shall remain in the ‘Draft’ status until they are submitted (by clicking the ‘Submit’ button at the bottom of the SLO). Teachers can click on the 'Save' button at the bottom of the SLO to save it at any time.
Once the teacher clicks on the ‘Submit’ button at the bottom of their SLO, the SLO will be validated to make sure the teacher has fulfilled the rules for submitting the SLO. Note that the teacher may click on the 'Save' button at any time to save their SLO and return to it later. The Save button will not trigger the validation that the Submit button triggers.
The SLO must fulfill the rules in the section Requirements for Submission before it can be successfully submitted. If the teacher clicks Submit and any of the rules aren't met, the system will display a prompt that lists the missing requirement.
Once the SLO is submitted successfully, it will appear on the school principal’s SLO Management page. The principal may use their SLO Management page to view the submitted SLO and update the status. Teachers may not edit their SLOs while they are in the Submitted status.
If a principal has viewed an SLO and would like the teacher to make changes to it, the principal may update the SLO status to ‘Review’. Once the principal updates the SLO status to Review, the teacher will be able to make changes as needed, then re-submit the SLO to the principal. Re-submitting the SLO will put the teacher’s SLO back in the ‘Submitted’ status.
While an SLO is in the ‘Submitted’ status, the principal may choose to update the status to ‘Approved’. Teachers will not be able to edit their ‘Approved’ SLOs, but their principal will be able to update the SLO status for the ‘Approved’ SLO in order to allow the teacher to edit the form again.
An SLO goes to the Completed status automatically once a score is either auto calculated by the system or added manually by the principal. Once an SLO is completed, the principal may not set it back to Review. For assistance with Completed status SLOs, please have an administrator contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
