Learning Outcome #1

The focus of IB students and their CAS activities is to meet the 8 Learning Outcomes at least once.

Learning Outcome #1 is stated as “Increased their awareness of their own strengths and areas for growth.”

Clarifying explanation: They are able to see themselves as individuals with various skills and abilities, some more developed than others, and understand that they can make choices about how they wish to move forward.

I interpret Learning Outcome #1 as “Students are able to determine their own strengths and weaknesses.” All students seem to be able to understand this language and are almost always able to immediately think of some activities to participate in that will help them determine their strengths and weaknesses.

This Learning Outcome also forces some students to try activities they’ve never tried before because they can’t determine if they excel at something until they try it.

    1. If a student fails to complete one of the 8 Learning Outcomes then they are not eligible for the IB Diploma. A student doesn’t have to earn 150 hours, the IBO just says to come close to 150 hours so this part is flexible, but a student must meet each of the 8 Learning Outcomes to fulfill the CAS requirement.

  1. Hi- I am very interested in acquiring some examples on each of the (8) Learning Outcomes to fulfill the CAS requirements. Thanks

    1. Hi. Have you looked under the Activities menu on this site? If this isn’t helpful let me know and I’ll try to find some more examples for you.
