AACU Rubics: VALUE - Valid Assessment of Learning in Undergraduate Education

About project VALUE:


"As institutions are asked to document the quality of student learning and to raise retention and graduation rates, (this) project will begin to define, document, assess, and strengthen student achievement of the essential learning outcomes in undergraduate education.  (As) there are no standardized tests for many of the essential outcomes of an undergraduate education, the VALUE project will develop ways for students and institutions to collect convincing evidence of student learning."
