CRITERIA ON STUDENT DEVELOPMENT.
PANOS, ROBERT J.
THE AUTHOR STATES THAT DETERMINING THE CRITERIA RELEVANT TO THE EDUCATION PROCESS IS EQUIVALENT TO DEFINING OBJECTIVES OF HIGHER EDUCATION. THE TRADITIONAL APPROACH TO DEFINING CRITERIA HAS BEEN TO SPECIFY FROM CONCEPTUAL CRITERIA (EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES), THE CRITERION PERFORMANCE. AN IMPROVED APPROACH USES A CLASSIFICATION SCHEME TO ORGANIZE THE GLOBAL CONTENT OF ABSTRACT STATEMENTS OF EDUCATIONAL GOALS INTO AREAS OF RESEARCH INTEREST SO THAT CRITERION PERFORMANCES CAN BE SPECIFIED WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF A PARTICULAR STUDY OF RESEARCH PROGRAMS. A SIMPLE EXAMPLE OF SUCH A CLASSIFICATION WOULD INCLUDE COGNITIVE OUTCOMES SUCH AS STUDENTS' KNOWLEDGE AND AFFECTIVE OUTCOMES SUCH AS MOTIVATION AND VALUES. THE CRITERION DEFINITION SHOULD MAKE SENSE WITH REGARD TO THE PROBLEM BEING INVESTIGATED AND TO THE POSSIBLE APPLICATIONS OF THE FINDINGS. THE AUTHOR FURTHER STATES THAT ALL RESEARCH PROGRAMS SHOULD BE FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO INCLUDE, IF NECESSARY, EDUCATIONAL OUTCOMES NOT CONSIDERED IN THE ORIGINAL DESIGN. TWO-BY-TWO CLASSIFICATION OF A FRESHMAN INPUT SURVEY INCLUDED--(1) ASSESSMENT OF INTELLECTUAL OUTCOMES SUCH AS GRADE POINT AVERAGES, (2) EVALUATION OF CHANGES IN THE AREAS OF STUDENT VALUES, ATTITUDES, AND PERSONALITY, (3) THE PROCESS OF VOCATIONAL CHOICE, AND (4) LASTING OUTCOMES OF STUDENT BEHAVIOR. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE SYMPOSIUM, "IMPLICATIONS OF A PROGRAM OF RESEARCH ON STUDENT DEVELOPMENT IN HIGHER EDUCATION," AMERICAN PERSONNEL AND GUIDANCE ASSOCIATION MEETINGS (DALLAS, MARCH 21, 1967).
