HOW TO WRITE LEARNING/PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVE STATEMENTS
To be recognized as a measurable performance objective, a statement must have 3 basic components:
· State the conditions under which the student will have to perform
· State exactly, what the student will be expected to do as a result of training
· State what the standards of performance will be
An example of a measurable “standard statement” would be:
“Given a written (or practical, or performance, or assigned project, etc.) test, the student will perform the following tasks with a score of 70% or higher:
· Adjust wheel bearing to obtain proper pre-load.
· Describe the procedure used to adjust wheel brake clearance.
· List the six basic carburetor circuits
This statement meets all three of the criteria listed above. You may use a version of that statement, or make up your own statement which meets those three criteria if you like.
Notice that the first word in each of the objectives is an “action” verb. That means that the student must really do something that can be observed and measured. Always use action verbs to start your objective statement. Do not use words like: “appreciate”, “understand”, “know”. Those things cannot be observed nor measured directly.
Therefore, a typical learning objective for an internship experience might look like this:
At the completion of the internship, the student will have performed the following tasks to the satisfaction of the employer/supervisor:
(List tasks to be accomplished here)
1. Consult service manuals to obtain specifications
2. Use correct telephone etiquette
3. Maintain work area
4. Uses pressure measuring tools to determine system pressures
5. Uses proportions in mixing compounds and liquids
The learning objectives listed below will be evaluated by the employer/supervisor:
At the completion of the internship, the student will have performed the following tasks to the satisfaction of the employer/supervisor:+
