It has been said that an effective way to prepare students for the imminent possibility of having to think is by giving them learning outcomes. Learning outcomes are statements of specific observable actions that the students should be able to perform if they have mastered the course material. Using learning outcomes can also help instructors to develop the learning activities, assignments, and tests for a class. In this workshop, we will discuss strategies for developing learning outcomes and highlight the breadth and scope of assessment practices that may be used to objectively measure learning.
