Help Center / What is a learner objective?

Learner objectives are what the student will be able to do once the course is finished. They describe student behaviors, and must be specific, attainable and measurable.

Some examples of student behaviors include define, name, discuss, explain, distinguish, reconstruct, identify, state, contrast and compare, list, point out, outline, apply, write, perform, debate, research.

Learn and know are not examples of adequate learner objectives, as they are not directly observable or measurable.
