Helpful Hints in writing Objectives:
Identify the Level of Knowledge Necessary to Achieve Your Objective - Before you begin writing objectives, stop and think about what type of change you want your training to make. In other words, what do you want your participants to do differently when they return to work? The domains of learning can be categorized as attitude, skills, and knowledge.
Select an Action Verb - Now that you’ve identified what domain you intend to focus on for your objective, it’s time to start crafting your objective. To do that, it’ll help to have an action verb to describe the behavior at the appropriate level of learning. Here’s a list of action verbs, separated by domain. Avoid having more than one action verb for each level of learning, and make sure it’s a verb that can be measured. “Understand” is too vague, but “complete,” “identify,” “recognize,” "discuss," or "describe" are specific.
