Assessing Program Learning Outcomes
The Association of American Colleges and Universities - VALUE Rubrics
The VALUE rubrics were developed by teams of faculty experts representing colleges and universities across the United States through a process that examined many existing campus rubrics and related documents for each learning outcome and incorporated additional feedback from faculty. The rubrics articulate fundamental criteria for each learning outcome, with performance descriptors demonstrating progressively more sophisticated levels of attainment.
The rubrics are intended for institutional-level use in
evaluating and discussing student learning, not for grading. The
core expectations articulated in all 15 of the VALUE rubrics can
and should be translated into the language of individual campuses,
disciplines, and even courses. The utility of the VALUE rubrics is
to position learning at all undergraduate levels within a basic
framework of expectations such that evidence of learning can by
shared nationally through a common
dialog and understanding of student success.
