Learning Outcome Examples

Several examples of learning outcomes drawn from syllabi of divers Institute courses.

The Learning Outcomes shown in the linked MS-Word document are drawn from courses at different academic levels, and the Learning Outcomes befit those different academic levels. A first year course and a senior capstone course will have very different levels of learning outcomes.

The real point of offering these examples is to show that each Learning Outcome is a statement that has as its subject the student, and its verb is a measurable action verb that calls for skills, behavior, competencies, and knowledge to be demonstrated by students who complete the course successfully. Assessment measures used in each course (exams, quizzes, projects, lab reports, homework, etc.) measure the Learning Outcomes in a course.
