Writing Behavioral Objectives in the Affective Domain.
Exercises and accompanying explanations are provided in a two-part learning module designed to assist instructors in writing behavioral objectives that can be used to measure the attitudinal effects of course material on students. Part I of the module defines behavioral objectives as those which call for specific responses from learners and discusses the hierarchy of behavioral objectives within the cognitive and affective domains of Bloom's Taxonomy. Part II applies this information to the development of written objectives for each of the five levels of the affective domain: (1) the receiving level, at which students begin to demonstrate an awareness of course material; (2) the responding level, at which students begin to participate in class activities; (3) the valuing level, at which students begin to find class material worthwhile; (4) the organizational level, at which students integrate course material into their personal value systems; and (5) the characterizing level, at which students demonstrate internalization of the course materials in their everyday lives. Examples of written behavioral objectives are provided for all but the characterizing level. The module includes pre- and post-tests on the material covered. (JP)
