Designing Behavioral Goals, K-12.
Doherty, Victor W.; Hathaway, Walter E.
This is a guide to the nature, purpose, and potential uses of 12 course goal collections produced by the Tri-County Goal Development Project through the cooperative efforts of school districts and intermediate education districts of three counties in the metropolitan Portland, Oregon, area. The Project initially fostered collections of educational goals appropriate for use in managing and planning at all school system levels and the coding of these goals to make their curricular uses apparent and permit their retrieval in various combinations from a computerized storage system. A long-range purpose is to help bring consistency to the way school districts develop goal structures for instructional planning and evaluation. The collections are designed to be used when school administrators make decisions about individualizing instruction, planning cross-disciplinary education, and establishing accountability. The collection can be used in long-range planning and educational development, evaluating effectiveness of regular and experimental instruction, teacher education, and diagnostic-prescriptive instruction. The Project provides both knowledge and process goals, and in this way offers alternative learning outcomes of both the traditional meaningful-reception/content-mastery type and the increasingly important rational thinking process type.
