Self-Assessment of Generic Intended Learning Outcomes (GILOs)
In order to facilitate the development of high quality attributes among graduates, our Centre and Assessment Research Centre (ARC) developed a question bank to set up questionnaires for measuring students’ self-perceived achievement of GILOs. The finding of 7 GILOs, i.e., Problem Solving Skills, Critical Thinking Skills, Creative Thinking Skills, Oral and Written Communications Skills, Social Interaction Skills, Ethical Decision Making and Global Perspectives will reflect students’ perceived development and achievement of generic attributes during their studies at the University.
The outcomes also play a critical role in balancing between equipping students for the future and enriching their current lives. Students, by achieving them, are able to understand and negotiate the competing orientations which is an important aspect of their growth and development, i.e., as part of their own life experience and their ongoing personal and social development, to be an active and engaged citizens.
All full-time undergraduate students in their entry year and final year will be invited to conduct a survey on Assessing Generic Intended Learning Outcomes (GILOs) every year and a Student Individual Report, which can help students to self-monitor their GILOs development, will be sent to each participant after then. Programme- and University-level reports will also be generated for the evaluation and enhancement of learning and teaching at the University.
Our Centre is responsible for administrating and implementing the self-assessment questionnaires on GILOs for full-time undergraduate students.

Rubrics and Learning Evidence for Generic Intended Learning Outcomes (GILOs)
Our Centre has developed a set of rubrics for the Generic Intended Learning Outcomes (GILOs) at the University. The rubrics adopt a consistent framework, providing definition and operational criteria for each learning outcome. The performance levels and level descriptors serve as a guide for students and teachers to assess learning and teaching in relation to the GILOs. We are currently on version 18.
