Behavioral Objectives for Mathematics Teachers.
Ciampa, Bartholomew J.
In establishing performance-based programs, mathematics teachers should understand how behavioral objectives are constructed, applied, analyzed, and evaluated. To construct behavioral objectives, the following factors should be considered: (a) outcome; (b) level of achievement, and (c) evaluation conditions. When behavioral objectives are applied at the organizational level, they can be used to predict the accomplishments of a large instructional division. Behavioral objectives at the program level can predict the outcomes of specific mathematics programs within curricular parameters. At the learner or classroom level, objectives usually represent small accomplishments within long-term unit or course goals. The more precise the behavioral objective, the easier it is to evaluate. Once evaluated, the objective should be modified and restated, if needed, to ensure maximum validity in its reflection of competence attainment. (Author/JC)
