The VALUE rubrics were developed by teams of faculty experts representing colleges and universities across the United Statesthrough a process that examined many existing campusrubrics and related documents for each learning outcomeand incorporated additionalfeedback from faculty. The rubrics articulate fundamental criteria for each learning outcome, with performance descriptors demonstrating progressively more sophisticated levels of attainment. The rubrics are intended for institutional-level use in evaluating and discussing student learning, not for grading. The core expectations articulated in all 15 of the VALUE rubrics can and should be translated into the languageof individual campuses, disciplines, and evencourses. The utility of the VALUE rubrics is to position learning at all undergraduate levels within a basic framework of expectations such that evidence of learning can byshared nationally through a common dialogand understanding of student success.

Definition

Teamwork is behaviors under the control of individual team members (effort they put into team tasks, their manner of interacting with others on team, and the quantity and quality of contributions they maketo team discussions.)

Framing Language

Students participate on many different teams, in many different settings. Forexample, a given studentmaywork on separateteams to complete a lab assignment, givean oral presentation, or complete acommunity service project. Furthermore, the people the student works with are likely to be different in each of these different teams. As a result, it is assumed that a work sample or collection of work that demonstrates a students teamwork skills could include a diverse range of inputs. This rubric is designed to function across all of these different settings.

Two characteristics define the ways in which this rubric is to be used. First, the rubric is meant to assess the teamwork of an individual student, not the team as a whole. Therefore,it is possible for a student to receive high ratings, even if the team as a whole is rather flawed. Similarly,a student could receive lowratings,even if the team as a whole works fairly well. Second, this rubric is designed to measure the quality of aprocess, rather than the quality of anend product. As a result, work samples or collections of work will need to include some evidence of the individuals interactions within the team. The final product of the teams work(e.g., a written lab report) is insufficient, as it does not provide insight into the functioning of the team.

It is recommended that work samples or collections of work for this outcome come from one (or more) of the following three sources: (1) students' own reflections about their contribution to a team's functioning; (2) evaluation or feedback from fellow team members about students' contribution to the team's functioning; or (3) the evaluation of an outside observer regarding students' contributionsto a team's functioning. These three sources differ considerably in the resource demands they place on an institution. It is recommended that institutions using thisrubric consider carefully the resources they are able toallocate to the assessment of teamwork and choose a means of compilingwork samples or collections of work that best suits their priorities,needs, and abilities.

Evaluators are encouraged to assign a zero to any work sample or collection of work that does not meet benchmark (cell one) level performance.
