Behavioral Objectives Writing Skills Test.
Lapp, Diane
The Behavioral Objectives Writing Skills Test (BOWST) was designed to provide an estimate of the elementary teacher's ability to write behavioral objectives. This instrument, which requires the teacher to develop three behavioral objectives for each of four hypothetical classroom settings, has wide utility as a teacher-training tool. It may be administered as both a pre- and post-test in either in-service or pre-service programs which attempt to measure the ability of teachers to write behavioral objectives. The BOWST has the following advantages as a measuring instrument: (1) extensive preparation is not needed for its administration or scoring; (2) it is untimed and therefore is not a speed test; (3) no oral response is required; and (4) alternate forms of the test are provided to facilitate repeated measures. The test construction, test development studies, and directions for administering and scoring the test are presented. Forms A and B of the test are provided. (Author/DB)
