The first pages of each module contain performance objectives which indicate to the instructor and student what can be taught/learned to meet entry-level medical secretary occupational standards. Following the list of performance objectives in each module are possible instructional strategies, pre/post tests, and possible instructional materials. A cross-reference section is included which outlines the main interrelationships between modules.
