SMART Goal Examples for Students

Goal-setting can be hard whether you're a student or a teacher. We're grown up, and sometimes we even set goals that are a bit too lofty! When you're sitting down with your students to set goals, the SMART goal structure can help save students a lot of frustration by putting guardrails on their goals to make them more achievable in the long run. In this case, the letters S, M, A, R, and T each stand for something:
  • S: Specific
  • M: Measurable
  • A: Attainable
  • R: Realistic
  • T: Time-Bound
Some examples of smart goals for students might be:
  • I will read for 30 minutes every day.
  • I will get a higher score on my next math test.
  • I will finish my science project by Wednesday.
Students can also be encouraged to set personal behavior goals.
