Assessment Rubrics

Association Of AMerican Colleagues & Universities

Association of AMerican Colleagues & Universities develops and advances assessment practices that deepen, integrate, and demonstrate student learning, through advocacy of learning-centered assessment policies, support for campus work to develop meaningful assessment approaches, and experimentation with common e-portfolio frameworks. Through its ground-breaking national initiative, VALUE (Valid Assessment of Learning in Undergraduate Education), AAC&U has worked with faculty and assessment expert teams across the country to develop a set of 15 rubrics through which institutions can evaluate cross-cutting capacities students develop across courses and programs.

Critical Thinking Assessment

Many colleges and universities have developed their own rubrics which they use to foster and assess Critical Thinking outcomes.  Reviewing rubrics from several campuses can help focus local thinking about expectations for students’ critical thinking.  See the rubric collection at Designing Rubrics for Assessing Higher Order Thinking.
