Critical Thinking Assessment Rubrics
Association of American Colleges & University's VALUE Rubric
The AACU Critical Thinking VALUE rubric was developed by teams of faculty experts from colleges and universities across the United Statesthrough a process that examined many existing campus rubrics and related documents for each learning outcome and incorporated additional feedback from faculty. The rubrics articulate fundamental criteria for each learning outcome, with performance descriptors demonstrating progressively more sophisticated levels of attainment. The rubrics are intended for institutional-level use in evaluating and discussing student learning, not for grading.
