Isabella, Marcy; McGovern, Heather – New Directions for Teaching and Learning, 2018
Outlining one program's history of outcomes-based assessment, the authors examine the relationships among assessment practices, program identity, and program values. Understanding the ways in which past processes of identifying learning outcomes reflected, and failed to reflect, shared values points us toward a new set of strategies for developing…

Lu, Jiannan; Ding, Peng; Dasgupta, Tirthankar – Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, 2018
Assessing the causal effects of interventions on ordinal outcomes is an important objective of many educational and behavioral studies. Under the potential outcomes framework, we can define causal effects as comparisons between the potential outcomes under treatment and control. However, unfortunately, the average causal effect, often the…

Meda, Lawrence; Swart, Arthur James – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2018
Learning outcomes are essential to any curriculum in education, where they need to be clear, observable and measurable. However, some academics structure learning outcomes in a way that does not promote student learning. The purpose of this article is to present the analyses of learning outcomes of an Electrical Engineering curriculum offered at a…

Holland, W. Hunter; Powell, Robert B.; Thomsen, Jennifer M.; Monz, Christopher A. – Journal of Outdoor Recreation, Education, and Leadership, 2018
Participation in wildland recreation is associated with a range of individual-level outcomes. Although these outcomes have been extensively studied, few studies have systematically examined and summarized this empirical evidence. Therefore, the goals of this study include identifying (1) the breadth of individual-level outcomes associated with…

Hood, Carra L. – International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2017
Stockton University, a mid-sized state university in the mid-Atlantic region of the United Stated, initiated the first of two pilots for implementation of its institutional outcomes during the fall semester 2014. At the beginning of that semester, in an effort to gauge students' attitudes university-wide toward the value of the outcomes, the…

Hassan, Sa'adah; Admodisastro, Novia Indriaty; Kamaruddin, Azrina; Baharom, Salmi; Pa, Noraini Che – International Education Studies, 2016
Much attention is now given on producing quality graduates. Therefore, outcome-based education (OBE) in teaching and learning is now being implemented in Malaysia at all levels of education especially at higher education institutions. For implementing OBE, the design of curriculum and courses should be based on specified outcomes. Thus, the…

Roksa, Josipa; Feldon, David F.; Maher, Michelle – Journal of Higher Education, 2018
Although first-generation students represent a substantial proportion of doctoral students, few studies have examined their experiences and outcomes. We contribute to this nascent area of inquiry by comparing experiences and outcomes of first-generation and continuing-generation students during the first 3 years of doctoral education. Contrary to…

Nancekivell, Shaylene E.; Friedman, Ori – Developmental Psychology, 2017
In two experiments (N = 64), we told 6- to 7-year-olds about improbable or impossible outcomes (Experiment 1) and about impossible outcomes concerning ordinary or magical agents (Experiment 2). In both experiments, children claimed that the outcomes were impossible and could not happen, but nonetheless generated realistic and natural explanations…

Gavidia-Payne, Susana; Meddis, Katherine; Mahar, Nicole – Journal of Intellectual & Developmental Disability, 2015
Background: Early childhood intervention (ECI) program outcomes remain relatively under-researched. The aim of this study was twofold: (1) to describe outcomes in children and families participating in an Australian ECI service; and (2) to explore child, family, and program characteristics as correlates of these outcomes. Method: Twenty-nine…

Matthews, Kelly E.; Mercer-Mapstone, Lucy D. – Studies in Higher Education, 2018
Graduate learning outcomes in undergraduate science degrees increasingly are focussed on the development of transferrable skillsets. Research into, and comparisons of, the perceptions of students and academic staff on such learning outcomes has rarely been explored in science. This study used a quantitative survey to explore the perceptions of 640…

Ainsworth, Hannah; Hewitt, Catherine E.; Higgins, Steve; Wiggins, Andy; Torgerson, David J.; Torgerson, Carole J. – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2015
Randomised controlled trials (RCTs) can be at risk of bias. Using data from a RCT, we considered the impact of post-randomisation bias. We compared the trial primary outcome, which was administered blindly, with the secondary outcome, which was not administered blindly. From 44 schools, 522 children were randomised to receive a one-to-one maths…
