Reports on a project in the tri-county metropolitan Portland, Oregon area designed to help educators answer the questions: "What is to be learned?""How is it to be learned?" and "Has it actually been learned?" Educational goals were produced for use in management and planning, and coded for retrieval from a computer storage system. The goal collections were designed for the following uses: (1) participation of students, parents, teachers, school boards, and local citizens in decisions about what the school should teach, (2) individualization of instruction, (3) cross-disciplinary education, (4) accountability, (5) long-range planning and systematic control of educational development, and (6) effective teacher evaluation. Types of goals, codes, and related support systems used in the system are described. Two lines of future development were planned based on the initial work of the project. The first is curriculum improvement, and the second is in measurement and evaluation for which the principal product sought is a criterion referenced set of test items related to each course goal.
