Specification of Training Objectives for Computer-Aided Instruction.
Bond, Nicholas A., Jr.; Rigney, Joseph W.
The specification of training objectives and the organization and implementation of courses around such objectives are becoming significant parts of instructional technology. In this report, there is a brief review of some of the background for this development in earlier, related activities of job and task analysis. Requirements for the specification of training objectives are discussed. The implications of data-processing technology for improved control over the specification and implementation of training objectives are illustrated in an example of how computer< programs can generate criterion task specifications from relatively simple data bases, and compare student performance with these criterion tasks at a response-by-response level. Thus, where training is concerned with teaching task performance, both specification and implementation of traing objectives can be considerably improved. (Author)
