Outcomes allow instructors to track student mastery of topics and concepts within a course. Using Outcomes would allow Instructors to align course assignments, quizzes, and other assessments with the Course Objectives stated within the Geisel Curriculum.
Note: It has not yet been determined if the Geisel School of Medicine will take advantage of this feature.
