Learning Assurance

In 2013-14 the Faculty of Arts undertook a review of the learning objectives and assessment tasks of the majors and subjects it offers into the BA and other degrees.

The aims of the project were:

  • To assure transparent alignment of published learning outcomes of all subjects (objectives and generic skills) with the published learning outcomes of the BA (skills and graduate attributes)
  • To articulate program level skills for each major in the BA
  • To assure transparent alignment of published learning outcomes of all subjects with the assessment tasks undertaken in those subjects
  • To develop and articulate the sequence of learning outcomes by year level (Levels 1, 2 and 3) in each program (major stream)
  • To collate and present this information clearly to students and to regulatory bodies
  • To develop processes for assuring ongoing alignment of assessment, subject learning outcomes and degree objectives through subject proposal and change procedures and periodic review
