The First Step in Educational Problem Solving---A Systematic Assessment of Student Benefits.
Sweigert, Ray L., Jr.
The limitations on educational resources and the increasing complexity in all phases of social organization demand that the educational process become more efficient and effective. A strong opinion among educators suggests that students can learn faster if the educational forces are applied systematically. To achieve this goal, learning objectives for students should be primary and must be communicated in the classroom. Activity that does not involve students is considered secondary or supportive. It is important that the learning objectives be related to the concerns of the consumers of the educational product. The student should understand the learning objectives, perceive their relevance to him personally, and feel that they are attainable. For the educational system to work well, the student and prospective consumer of the educational product should agree on the learning objectives. It is felt that this model will generate useful data for each decision-making level in the educational system. Any internal breakdown of the above outline will indicate an educational need or perceived deficiency in the level of student benefits which decision makers can correct using a consistent base of information.
