Workshop in the Preparation of Measurable Performance Objectives.
Fresno City Coll., CA. Technical and Industrial Div.
In order to produce measurable performance objectives for every vocational education program in the technical and industrial division at a Fresno community college, an educational consultant led a 4-day workshop for 33 community college instructors. Funded under the Vocational Education Act of 1968 in cooperation with the California Community Colleges and the State Department of Education, this report presents performance objectives developed within each instructor's field. Although each of the 33 instructors was required to prepare the satisfactory measurable performance objectives, only 25 completed these assignments. For each general goal, a desired outcome, a performance criterion, a rationale, and conditions required for performing the objectives are provided. For the specific tasks given to meet each goal, rationales, performance objectives, requirements for task performance, and performance criteria are included. The completed objectives are grouped alphabetically by program topics, ranging from agriculture to police science. Follow-up work, including task analyses and in-service training, is being planned.
