Goal analysis by Robert Frank Mager( Book )

47 editions published between 1967 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Goal analysis is a procedure useful in helping to describe the meaning of the desired goals; whether these goals deal with attitudes, appreciations, or understandings. This book aids people in making better decisions toward their achievement and in recognizing progress and success. Four major parts describing important aspects of goal analysis are presented. Part 1 presents the purpose and function of goal analysis in relation to a larger scheme concerning performance and task analysis and target population description. Focus is placed on the idea that statements about attitudes and appreciations are statements about abstractions and are always inferred from circumstantial evidence. Part 2 indicates when there is a need for goal analysis. The methods of implementing goal analysis are explained in the third section. The fourth and final part suggests the possible variations in the analysis. The summary reviews the major questions and points of goal analysis, stressing the need for selective usage on important issues or goals. A 4-item bibliography is included. (Mjm)
Analyzing performance problems; or, You really oughta wanna by Robert Frank Mager( Book )

37 editions published between 1970 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 1,905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When faced with a discrepancy between the actual and the desired performance of a student, employee, or acquaintance, the usual course of action is to "train, transfer, or terminate" the individual. The authors believe that while these may sometimes be appropriate solutions appropriately applied, more often they are not. They offer a procedure for dealing with such a performance discrepancy in a step-by-step manner. Their procedure, which follows the form of a flow chart, assists in analyzing the nature and cause of performance discrepancies. A performance discrepancy caused by a skill deficiency is differentiated from one caused by a lack of motivation or negative feedback. Once the cause of the problem is correctly identified, the procedure suggests appropriate remedies, including formal training, practice, positive reinforcement, or simply adequate feedback. The key ideas are illustrated by actual cases and anecdotes. A quick reference checklist summarizes the issues and questions to be raised when using this procedure. (Jy)
Developing attitude toward learning by Robert Frank Mager( Book )

35 editions published between 1968 and 1995 in English and Spanish and held by 1,759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is designed to aid teachers in sending students away from their instruction with a positive, rather than negative, attitude toward a subject or toward learning in general--an attitude which is essential if students are to use what they have learned and continue to learn more. The three-part book deals with the relationship between favorable attitudes, approach tendencies, and the inclination to use that which has been learned; the ways teachers can recognize behaviors which indicate favorable attitudes and can help students to develop and demonstrate them; and ways of measuring success in this area and of improving upon it. Special attention is given (1) to the role of three factors in determining the approach or avoidance responses of students to instructional activities (the conditions under which the activity takes place, the consequences of the activity, and the example provided by the teacher), and (2) to four factors which a teacher should analyze in determining how to improve his attitude-oriented instruction (instructor, instructional materials and devices, physical environment, and administrative rules or policies). A variety of concrete materials and illustrations are included to make the book readily adaptable to the practical needs of the classroom teacher. (Jes)
Developing vocational instruction by Robert Frank Mager( Book )

The main goal of the book is to describe the steps that must be carried out if one is to become as expert in the skill of systematic course development as he is in the practice of his own vocation or technical specialty. Included is a list of sources of instructional materials. (Pm)
