What Is Outcome-Based Education (OBE)?

Outcome-Based Education (OBE) is an approach to education that emphasizes the learning outcomes of students over the traditional input-based approach. OBE focuses on the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that students should be able to demonstrate upon completing a course or program. It is a learner-centered approach that focuses on the individual needs and goals of students and seeks to prepare them for success in the real world.

In an OBE system, educators use clearly defined learning outcomes to design curriculum and assessment, and students are actively engaged in the learning process. OBE has been widely adopted in many schools, colleges, and universities, and has been shown to be effective in improving student achievement and preparing students for college and career success.
