Goal Analysis.
Mager, Robert F.
Goal analysis is a procedure useful in helping to describe the meaning of the desired goals; whether these goals deal with attitudes, appreciations, or understandings. This book aids people in making better decisions toward their achievement and in recognizing progress and success. Four major parts describing important aspects of goal analysis are presented. Part 1 presents the purpose and function of goal analysis in relation to a larger scheme concerning performance and task analysis and target population description. Focus is placed on the idea that statements about attitudes and appreciations are statements about abstractions and are always inferred from circumstantial evidence. Part 2 indicates when there is a need for goal analysis. The methods of implementing goal analysis are explained in the third section. The fourth and final part suggests the possible variations in the analysis. The summary reviews the major questions and points of goal analysis, stressing the need for selective usage on important issues or goals. A 4-item bibliography is included. (MJM)
