Training Special Education Teachers To Write Appropriate Goals and Short Term Objectives with Measurable Student Outcomes for Individualized Education Plans.
Jacaruso, Yvette C.
The school district in this practicum report was found to be out of compliance by the State Department of Education in the area of writing individualized education plans (IEPs) that contained goals and short-term objectives with measurable student outcomes. Informal workshops were held to provide the special education teachers training for writing IEPs using Robert Mager's model for writing goals and objectives. In addition, the teachers were given Benjamin Bloom's taxonomy and a programmed instruction on how to write appropriate goals and instructional objectives. After the training, analysis of randomly selected IEPs suggested that the writing of objectives improved. Results of a pretest/posttest also indicated that the training was successful. A parent-teacher meeting was held to encourage the parents' participation in the IEP process and brought about many positive interactions among staff, administrators, and parents. Appendices contain copies of questionnaires, teacher pretest and posttest scores, and sample IEPs. (Contains 23 references.) (JDD)
