Graded Objectives in Modern Languages.
Harding, Ann; And Others
This book covers various aspects of the "graded objectives movement" in England and is intended to help teachers understand the ideas behind the movement and to form working groups to implement it. Graded objectives are understood as those objectives which represent steps in a continuum that could be attempted by all learners who would need greater or lesser lengths of time to achieve their objectives. In addition to a presentation of the general aims of the study, the following topics are addressed: (1) syllabus design; (2) materials development and methodology; (3) testing; (4) organization, administration, and coordination of local working groups; and (5) projections for the future. Appendices include the following: (1) an alternative model for modern language examinations, (2) working party reports, (3) a report on an experiment involving evaluation of graded objectives and tests, (4) report of a working party on oral testing, and (5) addresses of working groups. A bibliography concludes the volume. (AMH)
