Student History: Manage Personal Goals

Student goals are tracked on the Students>History tab.

Personal goals are for local program use and will not be used for Federal NRS tables. (See the special note below about high school diploma goals.)

Personal goals continue across NRS reporting years - there is no need to re-enter them at the beginning of each NRS program year. Goals are in effect until you end them. 

Rule of thumb for personal goals: create a row for each SET goal. When the goal no longer applies, add an end date to the SET goal row. If the student reached the goal, add a new row for the MET goal.

SET student personal goals

  1. On the Students tab, search for and select the desired student row.
  2. From the Students>Summary tab, click the History subtab.
  3. Complete the fields in the form at the top of the screen. Use one row for each personal goal.
    • Date: the date the student goal was set.
    • History Group: choose Personal Goal.
    • History Item: select one of the menu items.
    • Optional status: click SET from the menu.
    • Optional comment: if desired, type in remarks about the goal.
    • Click the Save button to create a new history row.

End personal goals

  1. On the Students tab, search for and select the desired student row.
  2. From the Students>Summary tab, click the History subtab.
  3. Select the row on which the goal was SET. In the Edit screen, type an END date and Save.

    When the student has MET the goal, continue with these instructions:
  4. Create a new row using the form fields at the top of the screen. 
    • Date: the date the student goal was reached.
    • History Group: choose Personal Goal.
    • History Item: select the name of the goal the student achieved.
    • Optional status: click MET from the menu.
    • Optional comment: if desired, type in any remarks about the goal.
    • Click the Save button to create a new history row.

Special note: high school diploma goals

When students pass the state competency based diploma, an automatic NRS Primary Goal MET history item is created on the student record.

When your student earns a local credit based diploma, you must create an NRS Primary Goal history group and item row showing that the goal was MET. This will ensure the diploma goal is included in NRS tracking and reporting. 

  • Date: the date the diploma was earned
  • History Group: choose NRS Primary Goal.
  • History Item: select the appropriate diploma type - local credit based diploma or state competency based diploma.
  • Optional status: click MET from the menu - NOT optional in this case.
  • Optional comment: if desired, type in any remarks about the goal.
  • Click the Save button to create a new history row.
