Example Goal EvaluatorShort-Term Goal

On the next page, you will complete a “Goal Evaluator” to map out how you will achieve your short-term goal. Be sure that you customize your goal to fit your situation. Below is a sample of how to complete the goal evaluator.

Example Short-Term Goal What Are Detailed Action Steps?Specific short-term educational/career goal: To have zero tardies in my first-hour class.

Why did you choose the goal above? Because my tardiness is negatively affecting my grade.

The “action” steps I will take are:

1. Share my goal with my teacher and ask for advice.

2. Organize my clothes, book bag, and set my alarm clock in the evening. Go to bed at 10:30 p.m.

3. To avoid being late, set my alarm clock ahead. Start a good habit of leaving 5-10 minutes earlier.

4. Ask my mom to call me in the morning from work to help me stay on time.

5. When I get to school, go directly to class and do not socialize. Arrive in class at least one minute before the final bell rings.

6. Ask my instructor how my progress is going and for suggestions on how to improve my grade.

I will successfully complete this goal on: November 1st

1.  Do better.

2.  Study harder.

3.  Be more organized.

4.  Turn in all homework.

5.  Bring book home.

6.  Apply to college.

7.  Improve learning habits .

8.  Go to bed earlier.

1. Do better by turning in ALL homework, asking questions when I am not sure, and asking for extra credit.

2. Study harder by studying for an hour right after school in the kitchen with the radio and TV turned off.

3. Be more organized by using my daily planner.

4. Turn in all homework by writing all assignments in my planner and taking home all of my required materials.

5. Remember to bring my book home. Take a few minutes at the end of the day to review my planner and pack my book bag without distractions and socializing.

6. Talk to my counselor about applying to colleges that would best fit my career choices, visiting colleges, attending seminars at school, taking the ACT, and getting applications.

7. Improve learning habits by using flash cards, creating a study group that will quiz each other, and studying my vocabulary words 15 minutes before I go to sleep.

8. Go to bed no later than 10:30 p.m. each night. I will do this by limiting my evening social activities and completing all of my homework no later than 9:30 p.m.
