Writing Program Learning Outcomes


Writing Program Learning Outcomes

While most programs already have established learning outcomes, in reviewing them, you may find that it is necessary to update or revise your outcomes.  When revising or creating new outcomes, you may want to work backwards by examining the following:

  • Consider what students should be able to DO with what they’ve learned in your Program.
  • How will students demonstrate this?
  • What can they produce to show that they have learned to apply their new knowledge?
  • Is the outcome measureable in a continuous and sustainable way?

Using this information, you may revise existing outcomes or create new outcomes that represent the specific knowledge/skills/abilities/attitudes students will acquire as a result of achieving a degree or certificate in your program.
