Research has shown that learning outcomes designed to focus on the higher order levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy directly relates to student “satisfaction, motivation, and engagement”
“Students see learning outcomes as useful learning aids and they use them in various ways to support studies”

- Ask yourself the following question: When the students finish my course, program, rotation, etc. what should they be able to do, know, or value?
- Learning outcomes should be SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timely).
- When writing learning outcomes, start with an action verb to describe the learner’s performance. Use verbs from Bloom’s Taxonomy to delineate the specific performance.
