What is Outcomes Assessment?

Matthew Gulliford discusses assessment at the School of Public Affairs.Outcomes assessment is the process of setting goals, determining how well those goals are being met, and determining the best course of action to take to improve those results.

This can take the form of either reworking the goals or rethinking the methods being used to reach them. Often a little bit of both solutions is optimal.

To learn more about the distinction between learning goals and teaching goals please see our guide adapted from Lesson Study for College Teachers: An Online Guide (2004) by Bill Cerbin & Bryan Kopp.
