The Instructional Objectives Exchange (IOX) collected for several subject areas objectives and measurement items based upon curricular material either submitted by teachers, schools, and school districts, or generated by the IOX staff. This collection is composed of objectives and evaluation items for high school literature, including poetry, novels, short stories, drama, and nonfiction. Each objective is stated in operational terms and is identified by a category and a subcategory which serve to define and limit it. The objective also contains an explanation of what is meant by the particular category when there might be some confusion of terms. All of the objectives in this collection require the performance of higher level cognitive behavior, that is, the student must apply knowledge, analyze the assigned literary works, and synthesize his responses. Each objective is accompanied by six measurement items designed to test the student's ability to perform the desired behavior. Because the type of process the student engages in requires higher levels of cognition, no single answer can be designated as correct. However, criteria in the form of a prototype answer designed to demonstrate the process called for in the objective are provided as an aid to the teacher. (TO)
