Structure of Behavioral Objectives, continued

Take the following learning objective, for example:
After completing the laboratory session, the medical laboratory science student will be able to perform a type and screen five times in under 1 hour when given a written procedure.
The action verb used in the objective above is "perform."
The audience is "medical laboratory science student."
The behavior is "perform a type and screen."
The condition is "following the completion of the laboratory session" and "when given a written procedure."
The degree is "five times" and "in under 1 hour."
This objective can be easily measured by giving students a practical exam in the laboratory.
