Success Criteria

Success criteria are written alongside the learning goals. The criteria for effective success criteria are:

  • makes the success criteria explicit for teachers and students alike;
  • builds a common understanding of success;
  • lends itself to descriptive feedback;
  • promotes self and peer assessment;
  • helps identify possible next steps;
  • leads to individual goal setting;
  • empowers students to take ownership of their learning;
  • challenges students to internalize the criteria;
  • helps develop independent learning skills.
