Classifying Performance Objectives.
Healy, John; And Others
The taxonomy adopted for use with projects operating under the auspices of the Florida Educational Research and Development Program embodies five primary categories: motor skills, verbal information, intellectual skills, cognitive strategies, and attitudes. Performance objectives are classified in terms of the learning process required for the accomplishment of the specified task. This classification can be accomplished by determining whether the end product of the specified performance is a demonstration of an ability to perform a defined physical action (motor skills); a demonstration of ability to recall a fact or a relationship (verbal information); a demonstration of an ability to distinguish between members of a class of objects (intellectual skills); a demonstration of an ability to classify objects as belonging to the same set (intellectual skill); a demonstration of an ability to identify or demonstrate a relationship between two or more concepts (intellectual skill); a demonstration of an ability to select and apply rules in a multi-stage operation (intellectual skills); an observable response from which an altered internal approach to learning can be inferred (cognitive strategies); or an observable response from which an inference about the learner's behavior-guiding principles can be made (attitudes).
