Writing Measurable Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)
Wait, wait... is that outcome or objective?
Although they're technically different, many confuse learning objectives and learning outcomes, using the terms interchangeably.
For the sake of simplicity, we'll do the same and consider the two terms synonymous, especially in light of the following resources:
- SUNY Potsdam Academic Assessment's information on Student Learning Outcomes
- SUNY Online - OSCQR Standard 9 Course Objectives/Outcomes
- Writing Measurable Learning Objectives from Arizona State University
- Learning Objective from Edu Tech Wiki
- Guide to Learning Objectives from Northern College
- Alignment and Measurable Learning Objectives (video)
