Abstract : The literature on performance objectives is reviewed under the following headings: definitions of performance objectives; function of performance objectives; pros and cons of performance objectives; and form of performance objectives. The review indicates a general agreement, unsupported by research, that performance objectives have value for learners, instructors, and designers; that there is no operational definition of the term performance objective; and that, although there is general agreement regarding the three formal characteristics of a performance objective, examples of performance objectives still differ greatly from one another in form. The results of six original studies are reported.
