The CIA FIRST’s School-wide Learner Outcomes (SLOs) are a set of twelve statements which describe what each CIA FIRST’s student will be able to independently use upon their graduation. Students have the following characteristics:
They are overarching (not subject-specific)
They are performance based (require transfer of understandings, not simply recall)
They require the use of the Habits of Mind, in combination with academic understandings, knowledge, and skills.
The SLOs drive all of CIA FIRST’s curriculum. Every unit of the instruction contains one or more of the SLOs as the long-term transfer goal. Students’ ability to display the SLOs will develop and deepen over time as they progress through courses and grade levels.
Students will be able to independently use their learning to:
Communicate effectively with a wide variety of purposes and audiences within and across cultures.
Use and understand existing technology and adapt to new technology in order to enhance productivity, creativity and communication.
Collaborate with others successfully, including those who differ from themselves.
Mitigate conflict and misunderstandings by empathising with others of differing world views.
Comprehend, synthesise and analyse complex information to further understanding and apply and share it in an ethical manner.
Critically appraise information for validity and reliability.
Make informed decisions after analysing situations from multiple perspectives.
Evaluate social systems regarding their effectiveness and ability to serve the needs of all people.
Explain phenomena, formulate and test hypotheses based on empirical evidence and axioms, and critique findings to further understanding, solve problems and make recommendations for further inquiry.
Identify complex problems and formulate, justify and apply solutions.
Convey appreciation of the arts, sciences and the beauty of the natural world.
Reflect on their attitudes and learning, recognise and develop effective strategies, and set achievable personal and academic goals.
Student friendly version – When I leave school, on my own I will be able to:
- Speak and write clearly in all situations.
- Use technology to improve and share my work.
- Work well with people from around the world.
- Understand what other people think and why they act the way they do.
