Affective Objectives

 

Affective Objectives

Like cognitive objectives, affective objectives can be divided into a hierarchy (according to Kratwohl, Bloom, & Masia, 1964).   Affective objectives focus on attitudes, emotions, values, and beliefs.  In the MD curriculum you would see objectives like this in Service Learning, in The Heart of Medicine, and Introduction to the Patient.
