Selecting Graduate Learning Outcomes

Part 3 of the Rationale section of an Assessment Item or Exam Item enables selection of the Graduate Learning Outcomes (GLOs) that the assessment contributes to. For more information, visit Teaching at CSU - GLOs, the GLO Interact2 site (self-enrol) or the Graduate Attributes Policy.

This is optional and not required for all assessment tasks.

Click the Select Graduate Learning Outcomes button to trigger the GLO selection pop up. CSU has nine (9) GLO areas; each with three (3) expanded GLO categories of:

  • Knowledge
  • Skill
  • Application

Multiple expanded GLOs can be selected; however, it is not expected that a subject would contribute to more than three to five (3-5) GLOs. Please make selections in consultation with your Course Director and the Graduate Attributes Policy. You may select additional GLOs beyond those required by the Course Director, but do not exceed 7 GLOs for the subject. A GLO may be assessed in multiple assessment tasks in one subject.

Part 2 of the Rationale can be used to further describe the purpose for the GLOs and how they may develop through student actions.
