Behavioral Objectives Checklist

  • Do each of the objectives describe what the student will have done when they complete the course?

  • Categorize the verbs in the objectives according to Bloom’s taxonomy? Does at least one objective fall into categories three through six?
    Application (3) Analysis (4) Synthesis (5) Evaluation (6)

  • Do your objectives describe "to what degree" or "how much" or "how well" a student must demonstrate the skill or knowledge?

  • What is the most exciting part of the skill you are teaching? Can you incorporate or emphasize that element more in your goals and objectives?

  • If you have more than fifteen objectives you probably need to cut back on the content of your course.

  • Review and compare your goals and objectives with those of a courses you have evaluated.

  • ß Compare your goals and objectives with those of courses similar to yours. What can be improved in the other course’s goals and objectives? Do your goals and objectives need revision?
