Instructional Objectives

These are defined objectives which the students should achieve at the completion of particular instruction. These objectives are based on Bloom’s Taxonomy of behavioral objectives. The objectives may be stated in general, specific or behavioral terms. Generally, Mager’s approach is adopted for stating ‘cognitive’ and ‘affective’ objectives in behavioral term.

Entry Behavior

Once the objectives have been decided, the teacher tries to assess the entry behaviour of the learners i.e. their previous knowledge, level of intelligence, motivation state and interests are found out.

Instructional Procedure

On the basis of objectives and entry behavior of the learner, the teacher select the content, teaching strategy and proper audio visual aids. At this step, interaction between pupils and teacher take place. Teacher present the content matter before learners.

Performance Assessment
