As part of the Association of American Colleges & Universities’ Liberal Education and America’s Promise (LEAP) initiative, the VALUE rubrics contribute to the national dialogue on assessment of college student learning. The original VALUE initiative in 2007 – 2009 involved teams of faculty and other educational professionals from over 100 higher education institutions engaged over many months to develop 16 VALUE rubrics for the LEAP Essential Learning Outcomes. Each rubric was developed from the most frequently identified characteristics or criteria of learning for each of the 16 learning outcomes. Drafts of each rubric were then tested by faculty with their own students’ work on over 100 college campuses.
Each rubric has been built and formatted appropriately and is ready to be imported to your courses and used anywhere you can align and evaluate with rubrics today.
