instruction and treatment They provide others with performance and evaluation information They provide teachers with a standard for measuring student progress ObjectIves where we want to be by some point in time precise de nition of behavior conditions and criteria eg Given a peer initiates a conversation Rupert will respond with at least one positive statement during 85 of opportunities over 5

before we judge t to be OK and by when Conditions prec se y when amp where shoud we expect the behav or to occur Terrance M Scott 2004 EEX 3616 Monitoring and Objectives Helpful Hints be sure that the main verb is observab e and measurab e be sure that the criterion matches the behavior be sure that the conditions must be rep icab e be sure that the conditions are c ear and make sense be sure that ou can measure your criterion J criterion and measurement instrument match be sure that the objective is stated in positive terms be sure that base ine rates have been used o se iteria be sure that 6
