Constructing Behavioral Objectives.
Baker, Robert L.; And Others
This pamphlet is aimed at helping an individual to construct behavioral objectives. The first two criteria of a good behavioral objective are that the objectives be described in terms of the learner and an observable behavior or product. This publication is specifically designed to provide operational meaning to the observable behavior and to help establish generalizable relationships between the fine classes of behavior defined and the corresponding conditions under which member-behaviors occur. Five verbs are labels for classes of verbs inclusive of those behaviors appropriate for most educational objectives. The five classes of verbs are: identify, name, order, describe and construct. Examples are provided and exercises in constructing behavioral objectives given. (Author/WS)
