Assessment Rubrics for Applied STEM Learning
AAC&U's Valid Assessment of Learning in Undergraduate Education (VALUE) project has created a series of rubrics that are broadly applicable to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning in global contexts. The fifteen rubrics, available for free download at www.aacu.org/value/rubrics, are useful for assessing student learning outcomes related to three organizing categories: intellectual and practical skills, personal and social responsibility, and integrative and applied learning. All are essential for students preparing to address today's global scientific challenges.
An excerpt of the rubric for quantitative literacy appears below. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the website.
