P ROBLEM  S OLVING  VALUE R UBRIC for more information, please contact The VALUE rubrics were developed by teams of faculty experts representing colleges and universities across the United States through a process that examined many existing campus  rubrics and related documents for each learning outcome and incorporated additional feedback 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 language of individual campuses, disciplines, and even courses.  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 by shared nationally through a common dialog  and understanding of student success. Definition Problem solving is the process of designing, evaluating and implementing a strategy to answer an open-ended question or achieve a desired goal. Framing Language Problem-solving covers a wide range of activities that may vary significantly across disciplines.  Activities that encompass problem-solving by students may involve problems that range  from well-defined to ambiguous in a simulated or laboratory context, or in real-world settings.  This rubric distills the common elements of most problem-solving contexts and is designed to  function across all disciplines.  It is broad-based enough to allow for individual differences among learners, yet is concise and descriptive in its scope to determine how well students have  maximized their respective abilities to practice thinking through problems in order to reach solutions. This rubric is designed to measure the quality of a
