it refers to the various learning activities or experiences of the students in order to achieve the intended curricular outcomes. Many times in our curriculum, lots of activities are done but these do not accomplish the stated objectives. Sometimes, there are extra activities done but are not specified in the objectives.
it refers to a set of objectives set at the beginning of any curricular plan. It established the goal, the specific purposes & the immediate objectives to be accomplished. It answers what the curriculum maker wants to do.
Indicators to measure intended curriculum
1. Are the objectives achievable within the learners' developmental levels?
2. Can the objective be accomplished within the time frame?
3. Are the resources adequate to accomplish the objectives?
4. Are the objectives specific and clear?
5. Are there ways of measuring the outcomes of the objectives?
6. Are the objectives observable?
7. Are the objectives doable?
8. Are the objectives relevant?
9. Overall, are the objectives SMART?
Question to be addressed to measure achieved curriculum
1. Do the learning outcomes achieved by the learners approximate the level of performance set at the beginning of the curriculum?
2. Are the learning outcomes achieved higher or lower than the objectives set?
3. Do the achieved learning outcomes reflect the knowledge, skills, attitudes and skills intended t be developed?
4. How many percent of the learners in the same class perform higher than the level set at the beginning?
5. Do the curricular outcomes reflect the goals and the aspirations of the community where the curriculum was implemented?
Question 3 - What has the BEC achieved? (Achieved Curriculum)
it refers to the curriculumoutcomes based on the first two types of curriculum, the intended and implemented. The achieved curriculum is now considered the product. It can be the learning outcomes, or a material product itself, like a book, module or instructional material.
