Some Applications of the Operationalization of Fuzzy Concepts.
Benedict, Larry G.
This paper concerns itself with a diverse set of applications of the Operationalization of Fuzzy Concepts (OFC) procedure -- a systematic method for breaking a fuzzy statement of intent, a goal, or a fuzzy concept, into observable, measurable components. The paper assumes that the reader has some prior familiarity with the technique. The publication gives examples of the use of the procedure in curriculum planning, curriculum evaluation, personnel evaluation, and program planning. It emphasizes the area of goals and behavioral objectives, and explores the dichotomous trend in education between Mager, Bloom, Popham, Baker, and McAshan who represent a behavioral objectives school of thought; and Atkin, Ausubel, Raths, Eisner, and others who represent a school of thought somewhat opposed to the behavioral objectives school. The author suggests the OFC procedure as a possible bridge between these two points of view. A short list of references is provided. (Author/DN)
