  1. Student and Staff Perceptions of the Utility of Learning Outcomes Jon Scott, Sara Brooks, Kerry Dobbins, Robert Norman & Mark Rawlinson Schools of Biological Sciences, Medicine & English

  2. ‘…. while learning outcomes can be valuable if properly used, they have been misappropriated and adopted widely at all levels within the education system to facilitate the managerial process. This has led to their distortion. The claim that they can be made precise by being written with a prescribed vocabulary of special descriptors so as to serve as objective, measurable devices for monitoring performance, is fundamentally mistaken, and they may be damaging to education when used in this way.’ (Hussey & Smith, 2002)
