This presentation will review the proposed options for assessment of the core curriculum that Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has required must be implemented by fall 2014. Specifically, the session will focus on the assessment of the core objectives and the ideas related to the VALUE Rubrics developed by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U). The session will provide a brief history of the Texas Core Revisions; what assessment of the core requires and what is not required; and good practice in assessing the core objectives from a community college and a university.
