Learning Outcomes

For curricular or co-curricular programs, we suggest the learning outcomes should include active-verb description of specific point or task that students will accomplish and are aligned with program, department, and university level goals.

Examples of Student Learning Outcomes:

  • Graduates of the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Theatre Studies Design & Technology will demonstrate the ability to conceptualize and realize a design aesthetic consistent with the overall artistic concepts of a production
  • Potential Areas for Learning Outcomes (from Duke University)

Operational Outcomes

For administrative units, we suggest the operational outcomes should include active-verb description of specific point or task that students or staff will accomplish and are aligned with department and university level goals.

Examples of Operational Outcomes:

  • Students will articulate their level of satisfaction with the services they receive from the financial aid office.
