The revised educational objectives for citizenship are presented in this booklet. (The original nine objectives are listed in ED 033 871). Brief summaries of the history and goals of the National Assessment, the procedures for developing revised educational objectives, and the main changes in the citizenship objectives precede the outline of revised objectives. Revision, undertaken by the American Institutes for Research, implied making the necessary additions, deletions and changes for updating. Seven major revised objectives identified are: 1) show concern for the well-being and dignity of others; 2) support just law and the rights of all individuals; 3) know the main structure and functions of their governments; 4) participate in democratic civic improvement; 5) understand important world, national, and local civic problems; 6) approach civic decisions rationally; and 7) help and respect their own families. Under each objective are listed several sub-objectives and a variety of behaviors appropriate for four target age levels; 9, 13, 17, and adults. Appendices list staff and participants involved in revising the objectives. Related documents are: ED 049 112; ED 049 113; ED 063 196; and ED 068 407.
