A popular definition of Outcome-Based Education was given by William Spady in a book Outcome-Based Education: Critical Issues and Answers. It states that OBE means clearly focusing and organizing everything in an educational system around what is essential for all students to be able to do successfully at the end of their learning experiences. This means starting with a clear picture of what is important for students to be able to do, then organizing the curriculum, instruction, and assessment to make sure that this learning ultimately happens.
The Commission on Higher Education issued CHED Memorandum No. 46, s.2012 enforced the transformation of the traditional content-based curriculum to Outcome-Based Learning. As it states in Section 13 of the CMO, “CHED is committed to developing competency-based learning standards that comply with existing international standards when applicable (e.g. outcomes-based education for fields like engineering and maritime education) to achieve quality and enable a more effective integration of the intellectual discipline, ethos and values associated with liberal education.”
