  4. 4. 3Components of Learning Objectives Performance A description of what the learner is expected to do Condition The conditions (environment) under which the learner is expected to perform Criteria The level of performance to be achieved for the learner to be considered competent
  5. 5. Bloom’s Taxonomy In 1956, Benjamin Bloom, an American educational psychologist developed a taxonomy that is widely used to set performance-based learning objectives for training programs. Action verbs: Remembering Understanding Applying Analyzing Evaluating Creating Define, List, Recall, Recognize, Identify, Name Explain, Infer, Match, Compare, Distinguish, Summarize, Expand, Classify, Calculate, Describe, Interpret, Outline Classify, Demonstrate, Execute, Solve, Use, Implement Appraise, Compare, Contrast, Formulate, Examine, Test, Sequence, Structure Appraise, Check, Critique, Judge, Monitor, Rate, Prioritize, Verify Change, Combine, Design, Formulate, Invent, Improve, Generate, Plan, Predict, Produce, Compile
  6. 6. Why Use Learning Objectives? Learning objectives set the stage for training development. They help training managers or learning and design professionals decide the course of action to take to complete the training program. Using learning objectives helps define the:  Scope of the course  Instructional strategy  Evaluation methodology  Course cost and duration
  7. 7. How to Set Learning Objectives While writing learning objectives , ensure alignment between the learning objectives, content, and assessments. Based on the learning objectives, we choose the training content and design assessments to make sure learners are tested on what they are expected to learn and not something different. • Learning objectives should clearly define the knowledge and skills learners would acquire at the end of the course. • Training content is chosen and geared towards helping learners meet the learning objectives. • Assessments will measure the extent to which the learning objectives are met.
  8. 8. 3Steps to Write Learning Objectives A Stem is the introductory phrase that addresses learners and sets the context – it tells them when they will achieve the objectives It is an introductory phrase that addresses learners and sets the context – it tells them when they will achieve the objectives.

  9. 9. Before we leave, let us quickly recap what we have learned. A learning objective is a statement, in specific and measurable terms, that describes what learners will be able to do on completion of the training. Components of learning objectives: • Performance • Condition • Criteria 6 levels of the cognitive domain: • Remembering • Understanding • Applying Steps to write learning objectives: • Create a stem • Add a verb • Determine the outcome • Analyzing • Evaluating • Creating
