Writing Lesson Objectives & Success Criteria

If you’re having a hard time writing learning objectives for a three-part lesson, look up and read about these three approaches:

1. Robert Mager’s Performance-Based Learning Objectives
2.The ABCD Model for Writing Objectives
3. Gronlund’s General and Specific Cognitive Objectives

This is how I do it:
A – Audience (Be specific about the audience)

At the end of the lesson, students of 5EKO will be able to:

B – Behaviour (What do you want them to do?)

List down 5 factors that influence one’s decision…

C – Conditions (in what form must the student complete the action in B )

… in a bubble map…

D – Degree (how far/ to which extent are they expected to perform?)

… with the correct spelling.

Complete example:
At the end of the lesson, students of 5EKO (A) will be able to:
List down 5 factors that influence one’s decision (B) in a bubble map (C) with the correct spelling (D).

WHAT ABOUT THE SUCCESS CRITERIA?

Based on the above example, C is what you’d like the students to produce. So, it goes like this:

12 out of 12 students are able to successfully:
Create a bubble map on what influences one’s decision.
