An outcome a learner is expected to achieve at the end of a given unit of instruction. From the point of view of a coach, it is called an instructional objective. Learning objectives can be established at different levels of difficulty and in three domains: cognitive, usually concerned with verbal learning; motor, concerned with physical skills; and affective, concerned with attitudes, feelings, and values. Commonly, learning objectives in sport involve all three domains, although the motor domain may be the most obvious.
