Development and Evaluation of Course Goals in Mathematics, Social Studies, Art, Music, Health, and Physical Education for Grades K-12. Final Report.
Allen, Jack; Wolmut, Peter
This project, using the previous year's experience in identifying and classifying course-level goals as desired student learning outcomes, developed course goals in six more subject matter areas. Under the supervision of tricounty curriculum and evaluation specialists, 68 highly qualified teachers wrote course goals for art, health education, mathematics, music, physical education, and social science. Teachers in career education coded the course goals to career education program goals. The computer storage and retrieval system was programmed and the key-word dictionary for language arts goals is being prepared for a field test of the program. Conferences and workshops throughout the Portland Metropolitan area provided information and assistance to teachers in using course goals as tools for classroom instruction. A major effort in the project was to identify the type and level of learning required for the achievement of each goal. Prototype measurement items are being developed to assess each type of goal. Success in the project has encouraged its continuation to complete the storage and retrieval system, to develop items to measure achievement of goals at the course level, and to disseminate them and facilitate their use for goal definition, curriculum planning and development, instruction, evaluation, and accountability.
