UK higher education has shifted to an approach centred on the outcomes of learning

"In recent years, most UK higher education has shifted to an approach centred on the outcomes of learning. The change has implied the writing of many programmes using outcome–based terminology. This paper is designed to introduce the terminology and to demonstrate how the main descriptive structures should interrelate. The paper uses an integrated approach to the design of programmes and modules as a context for the description of level descriptors, learning outcomes and assessment criteria and their relationships.

In the past two years two new developments have emanated from the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) that may influence or affect the processes that are described in this paper – subject benchmarks and programme specification. Reference to these are made in the text of the paper, and in the Appendices.

The work on assessment criteria is newer than that on levels and learning outcomes. It is only recently that we have seriously considered the relationship of assessment criteria to the other elements. These issues are under consideration in many institutions at present."
