This study developed outcomes-based instructional materials in three professional teacher education courses based on an assessment of the different kinds of instructional materials used, their availability and frequency, challenges faced by faculty members and students in using the instructional materials and the perceived need to develop instructional materials. A descriptive research design was used to collect data while a developmental research design was applied for the development of outcomes-based instructional materials. The researchers constructed a questionnaire using a 4-point Likert scale. The online questionnaire was completed by 38 faculty members and 655 pre-service teachers from Batangas State University, Philippines. The data collected were analyzed using descriptive statistics and the Mann-Whitney U Test. The results showed that there are various instructional materials used in the three professional courses and they are used based on appropriateness and suitability. Both faculty members and pre-service teachers faced similar challenges in the utilization of these instructional materials as revealed by the Mann-Whitney U Test. These findings served as the basis for the development of three outcomes-based instructional materials that followed the sequence of activity, analysis, abstraction, and application. The instructional materials were subjected to evaluation and found satisfactory in content and format. Recommendations given were incorporated in the final copy.
