Summary

This document presents the educational objectives for the area of social studies, one of 10 areas chosen for national assessment of educational outcomes. Also included is an introduction to the history and goals of the National Assessment program. These behavioral objectives for social studies are the result of inputs from laymen, experts, and the literature since 1945. Each of these objectives is broken down into measurable behaviors appropriate for the four age groups (9, 13, 17, and young adults): 1) Curiosity About Human Affairs; 2) Effective Use of Analytic-Scientific Procedures; 3) Sensitivity to Creative-Intuitive Methods of Explaining the Human Condition; 4) Knowledge Relevant to the Major Ideas and Concerns of Social Scientists; and, 5) A Reasoned Commitment to the Values That Sustain a Free Society. The exercises to be used in 1971-72 national assessment of social studies outcomes were developed from these objectives. The lay organizations, their representatives, and the experts who developed these objectives are listed in the appendices. In addition, see these related documents: ED 043 098, SO 000 898, and SO 000 899. (DJB) Primary type of information provided by report: Assessment Instrument (Objectives); Procedures (Objectives Development).
