Mini-lesson: Learner Outcomes and Assessment

To understand the connection between assessment and learner outcomes

To recognize the correlation between learner outcomes and rubric criteria

Learner outcomes are the basic framework of your project. It is important to have content, process, and product objectives so that all phases of your project will be assessed. Take a look at the learner outcomes for a project your facilitator has selected and answer the following questions:

- Can the objectives be measured?
- Sort the objectives into the three categories of content, process, and product.
- Is there a correlation between the learner outcomes and the criteria on the rubric?

Now look at the criteria on the rubric for your project. Does the criteria match the learner outcomes in your project?
