Writing Effective Outcomes:


Check your understanding of outcomes.

Read the following sample outcomes and then answer the questions below. 

"Learners" are the audience for the first two. The tutoring center is the audience or focus for the last outcome.
  • compare aspects of learning and operational outcomes.
  • explain the three most important aspects of writing effective outcomes.
  • Increase tutoring sessions.

These are specific and can be measured. 

For the first two, learning is demonstrated after completing the lesson. For the last, achievement would be measured after the next academic year. 
For the operational outcome, the answer is pretty straight-forward; increase by 20%. What's your guess for the first two outcomes? Take a look at our Bloom's Action Verbs list to help answer this question.
