Learning outcomes are a reflection of what children know or are able to do as a result of a learning activity. While learning outcomes are usually expressed as knowledge, skills or attitudes, the education system in Viet Nam mainly measures them in knowledge terms. As Viet Nam is transforming its school curriculum and textbooks with a move away from knowledge- to more competency-based, it requires a new and internationally compliant set of standards and criteria to assess learning outcomes.
Viet Nam’s education system is striving to keep pace and meet challenges presented by a dynamic and fast-changing world.
In simple terms, this means students are not only assessed on what they have learned in theoretical terms, but also how they can apply knowledge and skills. This step is essential to better prepare students for the challenges of tomorrow with a range of skills and competencies increasingly demanded by the labour market and to support Viet Nam’s development.
