Assessment - Short Scales

There are two versions of these short scales, a regular version (S2)  and a PLUS version (S2+). The regular version (S2) is quantitative using a six point Likert Scale based on Bloom’s Affective Domain to use as an ordinal scale for teaching and formative assessment. The PLUS version (S2+) includes the same six point Likert Scale as the regular version (S2), but additionally students do critical thinking, and provide extra qualitative data using reflective writing based on description, interpretation, and evaluation.

The short scales were developed using the Civic Engagement, Global Learning and the Intercultural Knowledge & Competence VALUE rubrics of the Association of American Colleges and Universities VALUE Rubric Development Project. Please see: https://www.aacu.org/value/rubrics for an overview of each VALUE. You can also see HERE for our handout on using all three short scales and applying Bloom’s Affective Domain.  

Please note these scales are intended to be teaching tools and for formative assessment and not for summative evaluation.
