Is There a Place for Outcome-Based Education in the Music Classroom?

December 1, 1992 / By: Janet A. Freemore

Outcome-Based Education (OBE) is based on the belief that ALL students can learn, but not necessarily at the same rate or in the same way. OBE is a philosophy which focuses on the learner and his/her needs. It addresses multiple strategies for teachers in leading students to learning. It also demands many new performance options for students to demonstrate learning.
