CSU's Student Learning Outcomes Assessment - "A set of ten video clips on developing and implementing student learning outcomes assessment by Michelle Saint-Germain, faculty and program assessment expert at California State University, Long Beach.

VALUE rubrics, from the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U), developed by teams of faculty representing colleges and universities across the United States, articulate fundamental criteria for each of 15 learning outcomes, 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. Outcomes include Civic Engagement, Creative Thinking, Critical Thinking, Ethical Reasoning, Global Learning, Information Literacy, Inquiry and Analysis, Integrative Learning, Intercultural Knowledge and Competence, Foundations and Skills for Lifelong Learning, Oral Communication, Problem Solving, Quantitative Literacy, Reading, Teamwork, and Written Communication.
