Allan, Richard G.
This is one of the outcomes of the work of the Massachusetts Evaluation Service Center for Occupational Education (ESCOE). This programmed text is intended for use by teachers in occupational education. Some of the theory and background associated with behavioral objectives is included. The main emphasis is on teaching the skill of writing a behavioral objective. The book is designed to teach these three main objectives: (1) from memory list the three requirements of a behavioral objective, (2) given a list of eight behavioral objectives, discriminate between those containing the three requirements and those that do not contain the three requirements, and (3) given four brief descriptions of instructional content in a variety of subject matter areas, construct a behavioral objective for any two that includes the conditions, performance, and extent. To obtain these objectives the teacher is asked to respond to questions and exercises, the answers being supplied on the next page. The items to be tested on are: background information, requirements for a behavioral objective, identifying objectives written in behavioral terms, writing behavioral objectives, other considerations related to behavioral objectives, and criterion-referenced test items for text objectives.
