Tech Resources. Student Learning, Outcomes Assessment, and Accreditation. VALUE Rubrics (Valid Assessment of Learning in Undergraduate Education): The VALUE Rubrics project is sponsored by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U).
Teams of higher education faculty and staff drafted institutional level rubrics for 15 of the AAC&U Essential Learning Outcomes (LEAP project) which, when achieved by a liberal education, prepares students for twenty-first-century challenges. The VALUE Rubrics reflect faculty expectations for essential learning across the nation regardless of type of institution, mission, size, or location, and contain the most commonly and broadly shared criteria or core characteristics considered critical for judging the quality of student work in that outcome area.
