DePaul University's School for New Learning VALUE Rubric Integration Project

Document Type


Publication Date



The faculty of DePaul University’s School for New Learning (SNL) Bachelor of Arts program used the VALUE rubric for integrative learning to improve the assessment of a capstone assignment called the Advanced Project (AP). The rubric increased clarity in articulating assessment criteria and, with revisions to conform to our own language and expectations, improved consistency in providing student feedback. Also, based on preliminary scoring results, the rubric promises to provide a tool for ongoing program assessment. The process of aligning the VALUE rubric and training faculty in its use took our Teaching, Learning, and Assessment Committee (TLA) about three years to accomplish.
