Personal Goals: SET and MET

This article discusses student Personal Goals. Topics include how to add new and end SET goals, and how to record a personal goal as MET.

Student goals are tracked on the Students>History tab.

Personal goals are optional, and for local program use only. They will not be used for Federal NRS tables. Your program may choose to use both SET and MET rows or stick to MET rows only when the student reaches the goal.

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. 

Rules of thumb for personal goals:

  • Create a personal goal history 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.

Below are some best practices for marking personal goals as SET or MET.


SET 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.
  • Status (optional): 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.
