Good Practice Example from the Bsc in Geology:

Critically assess previously produced geological data sets and interpretations tick

This uses both a suitable action word and is couched in broad and generic term so that is does not create any unnecessary barriers to learning for any student.

 

However, this outcome would not gain approval from College IF it had been phrased:

Understand previously produced geological data sets and interpretations red x

This lacks a suitable action word. How does one demonstrate and measure 'understanding'?

Or

Orally present on previously produced geological data sets and interpretations red x

This is unnecessarily restrictive as it is written in a way that necessitates the ability of orally present. This, for example, could exclude students with speech impairments and is neither a useful learning outcome nor is it inclusive.
