Effective learning outcomes:
- Are student-centered
- Focus on learning resulting from an activity rather than the activity itself
- Reflect the institution’s mission and the values it represents
- Align at the course/program, academic program/department, divisional, and institutional levels
Adapted from StudentVoice Webinar, Writing Effective Learning Outcomes, Spring 2011. Originally cited from Huba & Freed (2000).
Effective learning outcomes should align with the departmental, division, and university objectives, goals, and mission. They should always connect back to the big picture.
The ABCs of a Learning Outcome
- Audience (A) Who does the outcome pertain to?
- Behavior (B) What do you expect the audience to know/be able to do?
- Condition (C) Under what conditions or circumstances will the learning occur?
Examples of learning outcomes include:
- (Students) (will be able to recall) at least (5 of the 7 elements of the Social Change Model).
- (Students) (will demonstrate increased leadership skills) by (successfully completing a leadership skills inventory, as indicated by a score of at least 80% correct).
Examples of program outcomes include:
- (The XXX program) will (increase awareness of its programs/services) (by 20%).
- (The XXX program) will (increase the diversity of its volunteers) (to reflect the diversity at UWM).
