Writing and Assessing Course Level Student Learning Outcomes

Although the term "Expected Learning Outcome" may be new, the process of identifying the key concepts or skills that students are expected to learn during specific courses is not. Many people are more familiar with the terms "course objective" or "course competency". Expected learning outcomes are really very similar to both of these concepts, so if you already have course objectives or competencies, you are close to having expected learning outcomes for class.
