Join Kevin Kelly for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up your course learning Outcomes, part of Moodle 2.8 Essential Training.
- Learning Objectives or Outcomes form the nucleus of any course. Moodle supports Outcomes and makes it possible to link them to activities in the grade book. Outcomes is a feature that your Moodle system administrator has to turn on or enable. If you don't see it in your Administration block as we go through this video, then check with your friendly, neighborhood administrator and see if it's possible to turn on this feature. First, navigate to the Administration block on the left and click the Outcomes link. Before we add the Outcomes themselves, we need to select or create a rating scale that we'll use for evaluating if students have reached the Outcomes.
So I'll click the Scales tab. We can pick a Scale from the Scale menu or add a new Scale of our own. I'll click Add a new scale at the bottom. In the name field, I'll call this Scale, Performance. In the Scale field, I'll enter values from my rubric. We need to separate the values by commas and list them from lowest to highest. We only have to do this once. 1-Beginning, 2-Developing, 3-Proficient, 4-Exemplary.
I'll scroll down and click the Save changes button. Now it's time to add the Outcomes themselves. To start, I'll click the Outcomes tab. Then I'll click the Edit outcomes link at the bottom. I'll click the Add a new outcome button. For full name, I can paste the Outcome from my syllabus or type it in here. For short name, put something short. If this is a standard Outcome across your entire school or institution, then click the Standard outcome box.
Otherwise, leave it unchecked. Finally, I'll apply this scale that we just created. Performance. At the bottom, I'll click Save changes. Repeat this process until all of your Outcomes are listed. In other chapters, we'll learn how to add Outcomes to different activities. An optional setting allows us to link each activity to one or more Outcomes for tracking and reporting purposes.
