    • 2. What is it? SOLO  Structure of the  Observed  Learning  Outcome A means of classifying learning outcomes in terms of their complexity, enabling us to assess students’ work  in terms of its quality  not of how many bits of this and of that they got right (Biggs, 2011)

SOLO TAXONOMY(after Biggs and Collis 1982)Levels of understanding displayed Indicative Verbs Phase of learningas the student learnsExtended Abstract Theorise Qualitative PhaseStudent conceptualizes at a level extending beyond what Generalise The detail in the responseshas been dealt with in the actual teaching.

Reflect structural pattern.Relational Compare/contrastIndicate orchestration between facts and theory, action Explain causesand purpose. AnalyseUnderstanding of several components which are Relateintegrated conceptually.
