Stating general instructional objectives 1) Begin with a verb and state them in terms of student performance at the end of instruction Example: Understands the meaning of concepts 2) Stating specific learning outcomes State them using action verbs and keep them content-free Example: Distinguishes between proper and improper instance of a concept What are Goal? Goals are broad, generalized statements about what is to be learned. Think of them as a target to be reached, or hit. What are Instructional Objectives? Instructional objectives: specific, measurable, short-term, observable student behaviors can build lessons and assessments that can prove meet overall course or lesson goals tools use to reach goals arrows shoot towards target (goal) The purpose of objectives: to ensure that learning is focused clearly enough that both students and teacher know what is going on, and so learning can be objectively measured.
