• AAC&U VALUE Rubrics


    The Association of American Universities and Colleges (AAC&U) initiated the Valid Assessment of Learning in Undergraduate Education (VALUE) project in 2007.  Over a two-year period, AAC&U worked with faculty and educational professionals from over 100 institutions to develop rubrics for the AAC&U essential learning outcomes.   Rubrics were generated in the following areas:

    • Critical Thinking
    • Ethical Reasoning
    • Global Learning
    • Information Literacy
    • Inquiry and Analysis

    • Problem Solving
    • Quantitative Literacy
    • Reading
    • Teamwork
