Note: ADP’s director Jen Domagal-Goldman has been selected to serve as one of the project team members to develop a new national civic learning rubric.
In 2015, the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education, along with faculty and academic professionals from universities and colleges across the country will collaborate to create a national Civic Learning rubric. Following the VALUE Rubric Protocols developed by Wende Garrison and AAC&U, the national Civic Learning rubric will be suitable for institutional assessment of the civic content and knowledge students gain throughout their undergraduate education.
[Note: you can use the Civic Engagement VALUE Rubric for institutional assessment of the ability to make a difference in the civic life of our communities students gain throughout their undergraduate education.]
The project team is charged with the development of a civic learning rubric that aligns with the definition of civic learning adopted by the MA Board of Higher Education:
Civic learning means acquisition of the knowledge, the intellectual skills and the applied competencies that citizens need for informed and effective participation in civic and democratic life; it also means acquiring an understanding of the social values that underlie democratic structures and practices.
