Abstract

This article provides strategies for writing precise goals and short-term objectives or benchmarks. We developed this article from common questions beginning special education teachers frequently ask about writing and sequencing goals and short-term objectives or benchmarks. By following the logical writing and sequencing outlined here, you might find your goals, objectives, and benchmarks more informative and useful for other teachers, students, and parents. Throughout this article, we provide figures that you may use as models.
