Gropper, George L.
This document, fourth in a series of 11 subvolumes of a handbook prepared to provide training for educational research and development personnel in the development of instructional materials, deals with the task of stating criterion and preparatory objectives. The document content is arranged according to the sequential steps involved in performing the task. Step 1, planning the formulation of objectives for each lesson, involves making decisions regarding (a) number and types of objectives and subobjectives to develop for a lesson; (b) recall/transfer requirements for each objective; (c) availability to students of performance aids; (d) direction of performance for each objective; and (e) size of sample of performance to be used as evidence of mastery of an objective. Step 2, preparing a statement of objectives for each lesson, involves developing the following: (a) a statement of criterion objectives to be used in designing instruction; (b) a statement of subcriterion and preparatory objectives to be used in designing instruction; and (c) a statement of objectives to accompany instructional materials to be given to students. Background information includes a presentation of the uses to which statements of objectives are put, ways in which statements of objectives supplement information, and required characteristics for statements of objectives.
