VALUE Assignment Design and Diagnostic (ADD) Tools

AAC&U is currently working with an international panel of experts to develop the VALUE ADD (Assignment Design and Diagnostic) Tool series. The purpose is to help faculty and instructional designers intentionally create clear and effective assignments designed specifically to evoke evidence of the learning outcome(s) they have identified for their students. VALUE ADD tools help ensure alignment between the intended learning outcomes of individual assignments and the associated VALUE rubric.

Critical Thinking VALUE ADD Tool

Aligned with the Critical Thinking VALUE Rubric, this Assignment Design and Diagnostic Tool supports the creation or revision of assignments intended to produce student work that develops and accurately demonstrates a student’s critical thinking abilities.
