This article argues for the importance of measurable objectives relating to the graduates of theological education and that they should be course specific. It explains the nature of objectives in this context, that they are to be SMART – specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound. It also distinguishes between learner objectives, instructional objectives and behavioural objectives and gives advice in designing them for theological education.
