Goals or Objectives?

There is a difference between educational goals and objectives. Goals are broad statements indicating what the educational experience should accomplish. An objective is a measurable behavior the student should perform to indicate the education was successful. Click here for a greater comparison of educational goals and objectives.

It may be helpful to modify this basic outline of educational objectives for homeschool for your own program and save it in a word processing program. It would take only minutes a year to update it, according to the program planned for the next year.

Words written in italic need to be individualized for your student's program.
