« on: August 22, 2015, 11:59:31 AM »
DBE - Department of Basic Education Definition

A learning outcome is derived from the critical and developmental outcomes. It is a description of what (knowledge, skills and values) learners should know, demonstrate and be able to do at the end of the General Education and Training band. A set of learning outcomes should ensure integration and progression in the development of concepts, skills and values through the assessment standards. Learning outcomes do not prescribe content or method.


SAQA Definition - DHET

(Role, potential role, use, misconceptions and benefits - with special reference to their potential further application in South Africa in terms of recognition, qualifications design, evaluation of foreign qualifications and level descriptors)

-Learning outcomes express what a successful learner knows, understands and can do.
-The contextually demonstrated end products of specific learning processes which include knowledge, skills and values.
