LOBA is a Solution implemented on a large-scale to assess students at K2-to-K8 levels.
LOBA is a process that involves the restructuring of curriculum, assessment and reporting practices in education to reflect the achievement of high order learning and mastery rather than the accumulation of course credits. An expected learning outcome is a formal statement of what students are expected to learn in a course. Expected learning outcome statements refer to specific knowledge, practical skills, areas of professional development, attitudes, higher-order thinking skills etc.
A student’s grade is determined by how many learning objectives a student has demonstrated proficiency in. Each learning objective will be assessed at least twice in class, but students are allowed to be reassessed outside of class as often as they need to, until they have mastered the particular skill.
