The article discusses the effectiveness of Association of American Colleges and Universities' (AAC&U) Valid Assessment of Learning in Undergraduate Education (VALUE) rubrics in measuring student progress. It states that VALUE rubrics are flexible in which they can be used in different segments of higher education and adapted to serve multiple purposes. Natalie McKnight notes that VALUE rubrics in Boston University's College of General Studies are important because it makes faculty and students more conscious of what they aim to accomplish while discussing their goals allows them to reach it successfully.
