In addition, the document describes OBE as envisioned by Minnesota's Legislature, State Board of Education, and Department of Education. Concepts defined and discussed include learner goals, program outcomes, concept outcomes, essential learner outcomes, course grade outcomes, unit outcomes, lesson outcomes, graduation requirements, assessment and feedback, statewide testing, the test item bank, and instruction.
