VALUE Assessment Accelerator is a synchronous, hands-on, collaborative workshop that is tailored to those who are new to using VALUE (Valid Assessment of Learning in Undergraduate Education) rubrics. In this two-part workshop, you will gain a solid foundation in understanding and effectively utilizing VALUE rubrics. Upon completion of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • determine the alignment between a VALUE rubric and assignment,
  • outline your assessment goal(s) and select your sampling method,
  • review example processes for collecting student artifacts and useable student and course-level data,
  • identify key information to examine more closely for an assessment summary,
  • interpret VALUE rubric scores consistently using best practices for authentic assessment, and
  • detail two ways in which you plan on using your results to provide meaningful insights into student learning.

Through engagement with this workshop you will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to harness the power of the VALUE rubrics to improve assessment practices, understand student learning, and use results to inform future practices.

Who Should Attend?

VALUE Assessment Accelerator is designed for those who are at any stage of the process of using the VALUE rubrics; whether you are interested in or already using the VALUE rubrics on your campus or interested in or already participating in the VALUE Scoring Collaborative. Participants should be prepared to create and discuss their assessment goals, assignment selection, sample selection, and plan for using results.
