Classification of Goal into a Domain of LearningThe goal of the Plan B Program is to improve the student learners capabilities within the Blooms TaxonomyCognitive Domain. The tasks of the program allow the student learner to ponder, research, design, and plan for thefuture. A student that has mastered the Plan B Program will have an adaptable plan to chart his future. Therequirements for achievement will be known and he will be able to see his progress towards his career interest.Review of Task Analysis by a Peer EvaluatorThe Plan B Program Task Analysis was evaluated by two peer evaluators. One peer evaluator was familiar with thegeneral concept of the program and the other evaluator had no insight into the project. The peer evaluator that wasunfamiliar with the program reviewed the initial task analysis. He made suggestions for me to clarify terminologyand reorganize steps in the planning and implementation process. The peer evaluator familiar with the concept ofthe program did not add any suggestions for modification of the initial task analysis created. As a result, I re-evaluated the suggestions from the first peer evaluator and made adjustments. While continuing the instructionaldesign process for the program, I will revise and adapt the plan as necessary moving forward.
