Day 1: Symposium focus

Learning outcomes describe what we expect students to know, understand or be able to do; standards describe the levels of performance we expect for these outcomes.  While outcomes and standards are increasingly applied to specific assessment tasks at the course level, the application of program-based outcomes and standards is less developed. This symposium explored the role of learning outcomes and performance standards in supporting student learning in higher education.  

Those involved in teaching and assessing students, designing courses, streams or programs, or interested in providing better guidance and feedback to students, were invited to attend to increase their understanding of the role of standards-based assessment and to join colleagues in examining the practicalities of implementing learning outcomes and performance standards in your teaching.
