Assessment

AAC&U 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 16 rubrics through which institutions can evaluate cross-cutting capacities students develop across courses and programs. More than 2000 institutions are currently using VALUE rubrics as part of their assessment plans. AAC&U has also developed the “Personal and Social Responsibility Inventory,” a campus climate tool designed to assess various campus constituents’ perceptions regarding opportunities for education for personal and social responsibility. In addition, AAC&U has been a leader in developing the New Leadership for Student Learning and Accountability statement and the New Leadership Alliance—developing guidelines for institutional assessment and accountability.
