Communication about assessment and student outcomes sometimes uses multiple terms to refer to the same concept, or the same term with different meanings. In true innocence, individuals participating in discussions about accountability and assessment may misunderstand one another. In addition, new concepts arise with new research and more sophisticated practice in assessment. Thus a major step forward in communicating about student outcomes is to clarify the definition of terms and then to use each term consistently. To move this attempt forward, the Center for Assessment and Research Studies has developed a vocabulary of commonly used terms related to assessing student outcomes. To access, please enter your term in the box below, then click on your desired search option: by term, definition, or both terms and definitions. Each entry has the following information: term, cross-reference or synonym, the definition, and references, where applicable.

Outcomes are specific descriptions of what a student is expected to be able to do or understand at the completion of an activity or course. In simple terms an Outcome is like any other grade except that it can be applied to multiple activities. When the activity is marked, a mark should be given for the submission itself and for the outcome.
