Workbook (A Staff Development Workbook) to Accompany Work Sessions on Seven Steps to Better Objectives.
Alvir, Howard P.; Alvir, Claire Gelinas
This document contains outlines of work sessions on how to write better objectives and a workbook to accompany these sessions. The first section of the document discusses the following seven steps to be observed in writing better behavioral objectives: (1) write a simple behavioral objective; (2) edit your verb to make it an action verb; (3) revise your objective to make it learner-centered; (4) remove ambiguities to attain operational clarity; (5) chop-up the criteria into degrees of excellence; (6) pinpoint the conditions under which the learner will perform; and (7) ask a total stranger for his/her opinion of your objectives on steps 1-6 above. Three examples are presented in which these seven steps have been applied to a general objective in order to better define it. The first section also discusses applying these steps to allied health modules. The second section discusses the application of the material presented in the first section to a course outline. It covers gathering and classifying materials, determining categories and subcategories, and evaluation. The last section is a workbook which applies the seven steps outlined in the first section to nursing and health-related fields. (BD)
