Rubrics for the University Learning Outcomes
The rubrics available on this page have been revised substantially, first, to reflect accurately the content of the revised university learning outcomes, and second, to better show the developmental sequence of proficiency for each one.
Click on the outcome to bring up its draft rubric. Note the developmental sequence, from beginning to novice, then to proficient and advanced performance. Feel free to adapt and customize these to your particular application in course assignments, work duties, or co-curricular activities.
When distributed together with an assignment, rubrics help students to clarify the standards that will be used when their work is evaluated. If rubrics based on these prototypes become widely used, students will experience a greater consistency of expectation about faculty goals for their learning within majors and across the curriculum.
Send copies of the rubrics you use, comments, and suggestions to Milt Hakel.

Additional rubrics, adaptable for use in courses, can be found on the web:

The Assessment Committee created and distributed a Student Learning Self-Assessment form, which has served as a model for mid-course and end-of-course forms used by several departments.
