Student Centric Outcome Based Education – A Progressive Approach to Teaching and Learning
Outcome Based Education (OBE) is student-centered instruction model that focuses on measuring student performance through outcomes. Outcomes include knowledge, skills and attitudes.
Outcome Based Education prepares a student to achieve a set of stated learning outcomes and measures the extent of achievement right through the learning period. The subject/module tutor writes a set of learning outcomes that a student should be able to do after learning a given subject/course and the learning outcomes are measured using innovative assessment methods. The learning outcomes include cognitive abilities, attitudes and practical skills that a student is required to develop while learning a subject/module/course. It is expected that by mastering the stated learning outcomes, a student will be able to perform a defined task in the subject/course area with the right attitude and in a professional manner.
The OBE model measures the progress of the graduate in three parameters, which are
- Course Outcomes (CO)
Course outcomes are the measurable parameters which evaluates each students performance for each course that the student undertakes in every semester. In Sri Kaliswari College Curriculum - Knowledge Development and Cognitive Skill Formation (Part-I, II & III) form the base for Course Outcomes.
- Programme Specific Outcome
Program Specific Outcomes: PSOs are narrower statements that describe what the graduates of a specific program should be able to do. In Sri Kaliswari College Curriculum - Knowledge Development, Skill Formation (Part-I, II & III), Human Values, Eco Sensitivity (Part-IV) and Community Commitment (Part-V) construct Programme Specific Outcomes.Programme Outcomes
Program outcomes are broader statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. In Sri Kaliswari College Curriculum - Knowledge Development, Skill Formation (Part-I, II & III), Human Values, Eco Sensitivity (Part-IV) and Community Commitment (Part-V) and Leadership Qualities construct Programme Outcomes.
