This collection is composed of 16 objectives and evaluation items for Junior High School Literature, grades 7-9. It includes objectives on poetry and the novel. Each objective contains three elements: (1) the objective, (2) measurement items, and (3) means for judging the adequacy of the student response. Each objective is stated in operational items and is identified by a category and a sub-category which serve to define and limit it. There are two categories in this collection, the "Novel" and "Poetry." Sub-categories for the novel are: Characterization, Motivation, Conflict and Climax in Plot, Theme, Point of View, Tone, Setting, Relation of the Novel to Experience, and Genre. Poetry sub-categories are: Characterizations, Genre, Figurative Language, Diction, Repetitive Sound, Tone and Evaluation Process. The behavior and the content of the objective have been selected to help the student master processes and concepts by applying knowledge, by analyzing assigned literary works and synthesizing his responses. Six measurement items accompany each objective designed to test the student's ability to perform the desired behavior. To aid the teacher in evaluating and assessing the students' work criteria have been provided in the form of a prototype answer designed to demonstrate the process called for in the objective. User questionnaires are included. (GR)
