Goal setting is an important component of students' motivation, self-regulation, and achievement in academic settings. It involves establishing specific, measureable, achievable, realistic and time-targeted goals. Goals can exert positive effects in achievement settings by directing learners' attention to important activities and away from distractions and by mobilizing their effort toward goal attainment.

For students with an Individual Education Program (IEP) , goals are developed from specific needs as noted in the PLAFFP section of the IEP. The goal(s) will include the skills and knowledge the student needs to access and participate in the general education curriculum and program. Progress toward these goals/benchmarks is continually monitored and recorded at least quarterly in the IEP.
