Outcome-based education
« on: August 22, 2015, 12:33:41 PM »
OBE was introduced to South Africa in the late 1990s by the post-apartheid government as part of its Curriculum 2005 program.

Outcome-based education (OBE) is an educational theory that bases each part of an educational system around goals (outcomes). By the end of the educational experience each student should have achieved the goal. There is no specified style of teaching or assessment in OBE; instead classes, opportunities, and assessments should all help students achieve the specified outcomes.

Currently is also used/implimented in Hong Kong, Malaysia, South Africa, Pakistan, European Union, Australia. In United States also make reference to Common Core Education that works on the same principles.

Differences from traditional education methods

In a traditional education system, students are given grades and rankings compared to each other. Content and performance expectations are based primarily on what was taught in the past to students of a given age. The goal of traditional education was to present the knowledge and skills of an older generation to the new generation of students, and to provide students with an environment in which to learn. The process paid little attention (beyond the classroom teacher) to whether or not students learn any of the material.
