An exploratory factor analysis of data from 400 undergraduate students in Year 3 and 4 revealed a four-factor structure with the selected 19 items. 70,648 percent of the total variance was explained by these four factors. The results also show that students have positive attitudes towards all the outcome-based learning activities, especially how information about the learning outcomes was communicated to them and the activities designed to develop transversal skills.
