Regarding the authentic evaluation of learning outcomes, it was found the difficulties because the morality-ethics was naturally and highly abstract. The measurement could not be just limited through the written examination only. The wide variety of pre-learning, formative and summative measurements with the continuity should be adopted and implemented to evaluated the achievement of learning outcomes compared with the learning objectives predetermined.The aforementioned evaluation took quite a lot of time and didn’t limit to the context of classroom only.
