When developing rubrics for your program’s learning outcomes it can be helpful to see how others have approached similar outcomes. If you find a rubric you like, consider modifying it to suit your needs.

VALUE Rubrics

As part of the Valid Assessment of Learning in Undergraduate Education (VALUE) Project, the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U) developed a set of rubrics designed to assess essential learning outcomes for collegiate institutions. These rubrics were developed by teams of faculty representing colleges and universities across the nation to reflect faculty expectations for essential learning. The following VALUE rubrics assess AAC&U’s 15 essential learning outcomes and can be easily modified for use in your program:

Intellectual and Practical Skills

Personal and Social Responsibility

Integrative Learning
