Course Goals, General Introduction. An Introduction to the Critique Drafts of the Course Goal Collections.
Doherty, Victor W.; Hathaway, Walter E.
This document is a general introduction to the nature, purposes, and potential uses of a critique series that deals with the development and evaluation of course goals in six subject matter areas for grades K-12. The series provides an initial pool of course-level goals that are expected to be of considerable value in assisting educators with goal definition related to curriculum planning and development, instruction, evaluation, and accountability. The project involved examination of some 12,000 goals by 68 teachers, identification of the type and level of learning required for the achievement of each goal, and use of computerized methods. This document discusses needs to which the project responds, content, form, validation, uses, and update and revision of goals. Byproducts of the project and its curricular and measurement implications are also discussed. Related documents include EA 004 941, EA 004 943-948 and ED 061 043. (Author/DN)
