Levels of Degree Learning Outcomes

I = Introduced to the DLO; Students first learn about key ideas, concepts or skills related to the outcome. This usually happens at a general or very basic level, such as learning one idea or concept related to the broader outcome. This would be appropriate for most introductory courses.

D = Developed the DLO; Students gain additional information related to the outcome. They may start to synthesize key ideas or skills and are expected to demonstrate their knowledge or ability at increasingly proficient levels.

M = Mastered the DLO; Students are expected to be able to demonstrate their ability to perform the outcome with a reasonably high level of independence and sophistication. This would be appropriate for most upper-division courses.
