Rubrics - 

  • Value Rubrics - The Valid Assessment of Learning in Undergraduate Education (VALUE) Rubrics is an initiative of the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U). With input from over 100 institutions, they designed rubrics for 16 learning outcomes commonly associated with general education and a college education. These rubrics have been widely tested and have been used extensively at more than 5,600 institutions. While these rubrics represent the gold standard, they can be modified or adapted for use in many courses and programs.
