Common Errors in English Usage: Goal (n), Objective (n)

Once again, from Paul Brians’ book Common Errors in English Usage (to which he allows access at no charge at the Washington State University website), here is a worksheet on using and differentiating the nouns goal and objective. This is a full-page worksheet with a reading of two brief paragraphs and ten modified cloze exercises.

And, once again, Professor Brians supplies a clear and concise exposition of the use of these words–and makes room for a broader discussion about English usage and clear communication.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
