Assessing
Learning Outcomes :
Lessons from AAC&U’s VALUE Project

This issue focuses on AAC&U’s VALUE project and provides an overview of new assessment approaches it is helping campuses develop, including the application of rubrics assessing a broad set of important learning outcomes using examples of student work completed over time in an e-portfolio. Articles address rubric development, e-portfolios for learning and assessment, assessment processes, and the use of assessment results for individual, program, and institutional improvements.

The Winter 2009 issue of Peer Review has sold out. Articles are available online (see below) and the full issue is available as a PDF.
