What nondirective Standardizing LOOKS like:
  • time period for action is set
  • criteria for action is set
  • "Now tell me what you are going to do."
  • "What will be done first, next, last?"
  • "What will you need to get it done?"
  • "When will it be done?"


9. Ask the teacher to set time and criteria for action. You can assist the teacher having him commit to future improvement. This is done by specifying the time period during which the action will be implemented,when the various parts of the plan will be done, what resources are needed, and how the teacher will know the decision is working.

Nondirective standardizing helps the teacher commit to himself and his own decisions.
