Objectives Are Not the Place to Begin.
Knief, Lotus M.
In the current trend toward improvement of instruction and accountability, the writing of objectives has become an almost universal requirement. Objectives, in fact, may be at a general, specific, or competency level, but it is impossible to begin to write any of these until a course configuration (format) has been developed. Construction of a course configuration facilitates the determination of differing levels of course components; the writing of the appropriate type of objective as well as suitable instruction and evaluation of each component; and, significantly, the integration of content and student performance to facilitate effective and efficient learning. Furthermore, the configuration provides a form of quality control, i.e., a systematic basis for modification and revision. (Author/JH)
