Learning outcome

Learning outcomes are "statements of what a learner is expected to know, understand and/or be able to do at the end of a period of learning".[1] They represent one of the essential building blocks for transparency within higher education systems and qualifications. Learning outcomes statements are "typically characterised by the use of active verbs expressing knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation, etc. With 'outcomes-based approaches', they have implications for qualifications, curriculum design, teaching, learning and assessment, as well as ↑quality assurance".[2] The "generic outcomes for a qualification, that is the learning outcomes common to all holders of a particular type of qualification, may be expressed in a 'qualification descriptor'".[3]
