This is associated with a student as well as a course. Basically, provide the ability for either the teacher or the student to write yearly / term / monthly / weekly goals and then write an evaluation at the end of period to indicate if the goals had been met. Montessori schools use this format, and so do homeschoolers.
<Evaluation of previous month>
Did the student meet their goals. What was accomplished in the previous period.
<goals for next period>
What wil be learned during the next period. What new goals are there.
