This report describes the background, role, use of and support for learning outcomes at The Open University, UK (OU), which defines them as:

A learning outcome is a statement of what a student is expected to know, understand and be able to do at the end of a module or qualification.

All modules and qualifications have learning outcomes which explicitly describe the learning central to that study and to which the award of credit and qualifications is linked. Learning outcomes are intended to empower students by clearly setting out the expected achievements of study. Central to this definition is the need to offer opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate the knowledge, skills and other cognitive achievements they describe.
