Rubric Resources

The American Association of Colleges and Universities (AACU) Valid Assessment of Learning in Undergraduate Education (VALUE) Project provides generalized rubrics for three assessment domains: intellectual and practical skills, personal and social responsibility, and integrative and applied learning.  Within the domains, there are a total of 15 measurable outcomes and a generalized rubric for measuring these outcomes. These generalized rubrics are adaptable to individual institutions, and provide a list of criteria and achievement descriptions for each outcome.
