Preparing Teachers to Elicit Behavioral Objectives from Students.
Morreau, Lanny E.
This paper describes an investigation of procedures by which teachers can elicit objectives from students. A programmed course was written to develop competencies related to behavioral goal-setting. Four open-school teachers from each grade-cluster (1-4, 5-8, 9-12) were randomly assigned to two groups. Each teacher interviewed and established two goals and measures with three randomly selected students. After the experimental group completed the instructional program, both groups again interviewed three randomly selected students. The goals and measures were then independently rated by two judges. A review of mean scores indicated that while the pretest performance of the two groups was essentially the same, the posttest performance favored the experimental group. Analysis of individual scores indicated that each experimental teacher increased the number of measurable objectives elicited by two or more over the pretest; the largest gain of any control group teacher was an increase of one measurable objective.
