Performance Objectives in the Teaching of Vocational Agriculture. Professional Series in Agricultural Education, No. 3.
Garner, Raymond A.
The use of performance objectives in vocational agriculture is put into perspective with two assumptions. First, in formulating performance objectives, the teacher must consider the program objectives, the characteristics of the students, and the teaching resources of the community. Second, the diversity of interests, abilities, and other characteristics of teachers preclude the uniformity of general prescriptions for all teachers. The definition of the concept of a performance objective, its basis and origins (employability of students, task analysis, and goal statements), and special considerations in formulating objectives are defined. Presentations in the affective domain (attitudes and values), differences between performance objectives and other objectives, and performance objectives in the vocational agriculture field that encompass the utilization of community resources and problem-solving techniques are examined. A selected bibliography on instructional objectives completes the document. (JB)
