Outcome-based education (OBE) in teaching and learning is now being implemented at all levels of education especially at higher education institutions. For implementing OBE, the design of curriculum and courses should be based on specified outcomes. Thus, the challenge for the assessment is that it should be capable of measuring whether intended outcomes have been achieved or not. Likely, by assisting lecturer in preparing examination paper that aligns with the planned outcomes is something that can help to ensure the implementation of OBE. Hence, this paper describes a tool for composing question examination paper based on the outcomes. The tool, called learning outcomes-based question examination paper (LoQET), would be beneficial not only for lecturer but also to university in improving the quality of examination paper, thus, making the exam as one of the better assessment instrument for OBE implementation.
