Identify Objectives and Student Learning Outcomes

It will be difficult to assess your class or program if you do not know what you will be assessing. Objectives and outcomes should be specific, measurable, student-oriented, and related to the overall mission. The 5 Engaged Learning Goals are a good place to start. To help get started, ask “What do I hope for students to get out of this experience?” and “What do I want to know at the end of this experience?”
