Learning Objectives

Casting Out Nines says “Learning Objectives Matter.”

In assessments, preceding each problem there was a little blurb that said what learning objective the item was addressing. For example, an item on proof by contradiction might be preceded by the statement, “The purpose of this item is to assess your skill at proving conditional statements by contradiction”. So simple — and very helpful for both instructor and student.

I like this idea.

I always tell my students I never do anything for one reason, but this at least would make sure they knew what one of the reasons was.
