General Learner Outcomes (GLOs) are the over-arching goals of standards-based learning for all students in all grade levels.

The GLO rubric serves as a guideline for teachers and students. Elementary teachers use this rubric and classroom-based evidence to determine a student's rating for each GLO, which is then communicated to parents via the elementary standards-based report card.
