How to Clarify Classroom Instructional Goals Through Performance Objectives.
Alvir, Howard P.
This document defines a performance objective as a clear and measurable learning outcome. Performance objectives are equated with behavioral objectives. This definition is translated into a system that permits teachers to exchange ideas. The operation of the system is demonstrated using as an example six teachers developing a course in auto mechanics. The relationships between classroom objectives, students' career objectives, and industry's manpower and skill needs are examined and implications are drawn for the development of career education and training programs. The place of performance objectives in an overall systems approach to education is discussed with emphasis on the need for evaluation and feedback. The document concludes with an outline of the possible distortions of performance objectives and a listing of techniques for using them properly. (Author/RT)
