Ober: A Program for Objective Based Evaluation in Reading at the Newport-Mesa Unified School District.
Otto, Robert C.
OBER is the acronym coined by the Newport-Mesa Unified School District to describe its utilization of the System for Objective Based Evaluation-Reading (SOBE-R) developed by the Center for the Study of Evaluation at UCLA. OBER consists of three major components that are designed to facilitate the development and evaluation of the reading programs as defined at the district, school, or teacher level. The components are: (1) The Classification System: six broad reading categories which are sub-divided into sub-categories, sub-category divisions and goals; (2) The Bank of Performance Objectives: consisting of over 800 specific reading objectives, stated in operational form, and keyed to the goals of the classification system; and (3) The Bank of Assessment Items: this will consist of sets of criterion-referenced evaluation items keyed to each of the performance objectives. The five major steps that have been completed in the OBER project are: individual schools selected participants; individual schools selected goals; district goals established from the schools' goals; schools selected performance objectives for each goal; and district composite of performance objectives established. Five appendixes provide the following: Statement of Educational Principles; Goal Selection Form; Performance Objective Selection Form; Performance Objective Tally; and an excerpt from the combined District Composite of Goals and Objectives.
