Outcome-Based Education @ Yenepoya (Deemed to be University) Yenepoya (Deemed to be University) has adopted Outcome Based Education (OBE) across all the constituent colleges.
This educational framework is based on desired outcomes and defined goals to be achieved by the students. It is expected to show evident distinguishable improvement and attainment of knowledge and skill.
OBE tends to addresses the following:
What do we want the students to have?
What do we want the students to be able to do?
How can we best help students achieve the desired goals?
How will we know whether the students have achieved it?
How does it help in Continuous Quality Improvement?
The components of OBE include:
Vision Mission of the institution
Program educational objectives (PEOs)
Program Outcomes (POs)
Program-specific Outcomes (PSOs)
Course outcomes (COs)
Course-specific learning outcomes (CSOs)/ Competencies
Program educational objectives describe the professional accomplishments of the graduates to be attained within a few years of their graduation.
Program Outcomes are statements about the knowledge, skills, and attitudes (attributes) that a graduate should attain at the end of a program(Eg: MBBS, BDS, MD, MCh, BPT, BDS, BSc. Nursing, BAMS, etc.)
Program specific outcomes are specific statements about what the student should be able to do at the time of graduation with respect to cognitive, affective and psychomotor learning domains.
Course outcomes are statements describing the meaningful, observable and measurable knowledge, skills, attitudes and attributes the student will learn by the end of course/subject (Eg: Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, etc.).
Course-specific learning outcomes or Competencies are designed to be a measurable, observable, and specific statement indicating what the student must know and should be able to do at the end of a teaching-learning process.
Mapping of learning outcomes
Course-specific outcomes/Competencies are mapped with the course outcomes using attainment values (Substantial, Moderate, Slight and None)
Similarly, course outcomes are mapped with program outcomes
