Introduction to K-12 Course Goals for Educational Planning and Evaluation. Third Edition.
Doherty, Victor W.; Peters, Linda B.
This is a guide to the nature, purpose, and potential uses of 13 course goal collections produced by the K-12 Goal Development Project through the cooperative efforts of the school districts and intermediate education districts of three counties in the metropolitan Portland, Oregon, area. The project has as its initial objective the production of collections of educational goals (learning outcomes) for use in managing and planning at all school system levels and the labeling of these goals with codes that make their curricular uses apparent and permit their retrieval in various combinations from a computerized storage system. To date, these collections have been produced in the following subject areas: art, biological and physical sciences, business education, computer education, health education, home economics, industrial education, language arts, mathematics, music, physical education, second language, social science, and career education. Three major goal types have been identified and coded in the collections--knowledge, process, and value. Of the four levels of goals--system, program, course, and instructional--only program and course levels are of immediate concern. These goal collections are designed for eight uses, including making decisions about what the schools should teach, planning cross-disciplinary instruction, and establishing accountability.
