This collection is composed of objectives and evaluation items in poetry, novel, short story, drama, and essay for Senior High, Grades 10-12. Each objective contains four elements: (1) the objective, (2) measurement items, (3) means for judging the adequacy of the student response, and (4) an IOX (Instructional Objectives Exchange) acceptability rating. Each objective is stated in operational terms and identified by a category and sub-category. For example, the novel, sub-category "genre" includes such types as detective, historical, novel of incident, novel of manner, psychological novel, and regional novel. The following sub-categories can be applied to each objective, tone, point of view, characterization, setting, motivation, symbolism and figurative language. Six measurement items are designed to test the student's ability to perform the desired behavior. To aid the teacher, two principles of evaluation are given: (1) teach a process rather than specific facts (criteria are privided in the form of prototype answers), (2) the adequacy of response to an item depends partly on proof contained within context of work and the student's interpretation supported by reference to the text. Lists of poems, plays, short stories, Greek and Roman myths, and essays cited in the items are included. User questionnaires accompany the collection . (GR)
