Outcome Based Education (OBE) is education based on producing particular educational outcomes that focuses on what students can actually do after they are taught; and expect all learners/students to successfully achieve particular
(sometimes minimum) level of knowledge and abilities. The rationale for OBE is in order to have proof that learning has really taken place and that the learning has equipped learners with the skills and knowledge that will enable them to solve
authentic problems in a workplace situation.
OBE is able to develop knowledge economy and higher order economic efficiency call for quality and accountability in education. Learning outcomes, as an integral part of OBE, can develop the accountability that can be put forward to the outside constituents (stakeholders).
