Objectives of Target Setting



To raise awareness amongst
students on their individual potential



Guide students using targets as a
goal they should work towards

Creating a Scaffold for Progress


Each student will be given an
initial

target grade for all subjects he or
she offers


Once a target is reached, the
teachers and parents can revise the
target upwards

Performance


tracking progress


Students enter their targets into their school
diary. After every test, the students compare
their results against their targets to keep
track of their performance


Teachers use class contact time and other
times to discuss with the students on their
targets and guide the students to work
towards achieving them

Your Target

Performance

Your Target for Maths
