Third, and final, in a series of two-week workshops designed to teach the techniques of developing competency-based curriculum materials, the phase III workshop had two major thrusts: to assess the quality of curriculum materials previously developed and to determine in what areas of curriculum development the workshop participants needed professional assistance. Workshop objectives were established through participant questionnaires, assessment activities, and review of the format for learning activities established during the phase II workshop. The format for assessment instruments developed during phase II was deemed acceptable with a few minor changes. Emphasis was placed on participants learning to write terminal performance objectives, enabling objectives, performance objectives, learning activities, and criterion-referenced tests or assessment instruments. The bulk of the report consists of appendixes containing materials developed in the workshops: appendix A: behavioral objective, learning activity, and assessment instrument handouts and checklists; appendix B: programmed learning activities (competency, writing performance objectives, and validating performance objectives); appendix C: principles of writing learning activities; appendix D: types of assessment procedures and criterion assessment; appendix E: recommended format for learning packages; and appendix F: ten learning packet samples, two each in five areas: advertising art, architectural drawing, literary arts, photography, and printing.
