Outcome-based Education (OBE)

Outcome-Based-Education (OBE) is an educational model that focuses on what the students can actually do after they have been taught. It has been widely adopted by major academic institutions throughout the world. All tertiary institutions under the aegis of Ministry of Education, Malaysia (MOE) are expected to implement OBE.

OBE covers all aspects of the teaching & learning cycle from curriculum design (planning), instructional delivery, constructive assessment to evaluation and continuous-quality-improvement.

KDU Penang embraces OBE, and as such, its learning outcomes focus on all aspects of teaching & learning. Planning of programmes, delivery and assessments of courses are all aligned to the learning outcomes.

Measuring the achievement of learning outcomes is done through direct assessments and constructive alignment of assessments to the outcomes. In addition, indirect measurements are used through student, alumni, and employer surveys.
