Abstract

The project aims to evaluate the impact of the implementation of outcome-based learning (OBL) on student learning outcomes. A historical control group design will be used. Quantitative and qualitative data will be collected. Prior to the introduction of OBL, students of three modules offered by EPCL taught in the traditional mode will be requested to complete pre and post course questionnaires on learning outcomes. Focus groups will be conducted with some of these students to gather their opinions and experiences on the modules in relation to the learning outcomes. With the introduction of OBL, students of the three modules taught using the OBL mode will be requested to complete pre and post course questionnaires on learning outcomes. Focus groups will be conducted with these students to gather their opinions and experiences on the modules in relation to the learning outcomes. The quantitative data will be analyzed using analysis of covariance, controlling for pre-course differences and other possible demographic differences. The qualitative data will be content analyzed.
