Abstract : The specification of training objectives, and the organization and implementation of courses around such objectives, is becoming a significant part of instructional technology. In the report, there is a brief review of some of the background for this development in earlier, related activities of job and task analysis. Requirements for the specification of training objectives are discussed. The implications of data-processing technology for improved control over the specification and implementation of training objectives are illustrated in an example of how computer programs can generate criterion task specifications from relatively simple data bases, and compare student performance with these criterion tasks at a response-by-response level.
