SOLO taxonomy

What have I learned during my Level of Competency Assessment course recently? I learned about SOLO Taxonomy.

SOLO stands for Structure of Observed Learning Outcomes, basically it is to measure the learning outcomes of your students. There is a very clear description of what outcomes this taxonomy has at the following link:

This page even categorised the five levels of learning outcomes into LO of quantity, and LO of quality. Good for you to think about what your students be learning from your classes. I totally go for the quality of it, meaning level no.5, yup, teachers should be teaching the students to grasp the concepts (so that they will achieve the intended learning outcome) and facilitating learning beyond the intended, like of level 5.

In a short description, learners should be learning FOR LIFE.

Beneficial course-cum-assessment to attend, even if it nearly "killed" me with the stress!!!
