[Faculty Brown Bag] VALUE Rubrics

November 9

12:15 pm - 1:00 pm

In this presentation, Paul Donaldson (Associate Provost of Planning and Academic Initiatives) will introduce and discuss standardized rubrics developed by the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U) known as VALUE rubrics. We will review the different parts of a well developed rubric, the approach taken through VALUE, and the various different rubric templates. The presentation will conclude with a Q&A and request to further develop one VALUE rubric template and adopt at NTCC for the Spring 2022 semester. 


More About VALUE Rubrics: 


“VALUE (Valid Assessment of Learning in Undergraduate Education) is a campus-based assessment approach developed and led by AAC&U. VALUE rubrics provide needed tools to assess students’ own authentic work, produced across students’ diverse learning pathways, fields of study and institutions, to determine whether and how well students are meeting graduation level achievement in learning outcomes that both employers and faculty consider essential. Teams of faculty and other educational professionals from institutions across the country—two- and four-year, private and public, research and liberal arts, large and small—developed rubrics for sixteen Essential Learning Outcomes that all students need for success in work, citizenship, and life. The VALUE rubrics are being used to help institutions demonstrate, share, and assess student accomplishment of progressively more advanced and integrative learning.” … “The VALUE rubrics include Inquiry and Analysis, Critical Thinking, Creative Thinking, Written Communication, Oral Communication, Quantitative Literacy, Information Literacy, Reading, Teamwork, Problem Solving, Civic Knowledge and Engagement—Local and Global, Intercultural Knowledge and Competence, Ethical Reasoning and Action, Global Learning, Foundations and Skills for Lifelong Learning, and Integrative Learning.” More information is available at
