It is fundamental that learner progress and targets are reviewed on the date originally specified when creating the target, without the review students will not be motivated to meet the target and all future targets will be undermined, being considered optional by students. Reviewing targets also lets students know they are on the right track, especially when the review coincides with assessment feedback and the creation of another target that highlights their progress towards their final goal. It is also essential to review and discuss a target that has not been achieved, this may highlight external factors that have not yet been considered that have been having an impact on the students work load, or it may demonstrate that the original target was beyond the student’s ability. When implemented effectively the review of a target, both one that is completed or not yet met, can be incredibly motivating for students.
