Problem Solving VALUE Rubric built by AACU_VALUE

Rubric Code: A476BB
Problem solving is the process of designing, evaluating and implementing a strategy to answer an open-ended question or achieve a desired goal. 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 process, rather than the quality of an end-product. As a result, work samples or collections of work will need to include some evidence of the individual’s thinking about a problem-solving task (e.g., reflections on the process from problem to proposed solution; steps in a problem-based learning assignment; record of think-aloud protocol while solving a problem).

Define Problem
Capstone

Demonstrates the ability to construct a clear and insightful problem statement with evidence of all relevant contextual factors.
Milestone

Demonstrates the ability to construct a problem statement with evidence of most relevant contextual factors, and problem statement is adequately detailed.
Milestone

Begins to demonstrate the ability to construct a problem statement with evidence of most relevant contextual factors, but problem statement is superficial.
Benchmark

Demonstrates a limited ability in identifying a problem statement or related contextual factors.
Identify Strategies
Capstone

Identifies multiple approaches for solving the problem that apply within a specific context.
Milestone

Identifies multiple approaches for solving the problem, only some of which apply within a specific context.
Milestone

Identifies only a single approach for solving the problem that does apply within a specific context.
Benchmark

Identifies one or more approaches for solving the problem that do not apply within a specific context.
Propose Solutions/Hypotheses
Capstone

Proposes one or more solutions/hypotheses that indicates a deep comprehension of the problem. Solution/hypotheses are sensitive to contextual factors as well as all of the following: ethical, logical, and cultural dimensions of the problem.
Milestone

Proposes one or more solutions/hypotheses that indicates comprehension of the problem. Solutions/hypotheses are sensitive to contextual factors as well as the one of the following: ethical, logical, or cultural dimensions of the problem.
Milestone

Proposes one solution/hypothesis that is “off the shelf” rather than individually designed to address the specific contextual factors of the problem.
Benchmark

Proposes a solution/hypothesis that is difficult to evaluate because it is vague or only indirectly addresses the problem statement.
Evaluate Potential Solutions
Capstone

Evaluation of solutions is deep and elegant (for example, contains thorough and insightful explanation) and includes, deeply and thoroughly, all of the following: considers history of problem, reviews logic/reasoning, examines feasibility of solution, and weighs impacts of solution.
Milestone

Evaluation of solutions is adequate (for example, contains thorough explanation) and includes the following: considers history of problem, reviews logic/reasoning, examines feasibility of solution, and weighs impacts of solution.
Milestone

Evaluation of solutions is brief (for example, explanation lacks depth) and includes the following: considers history of problem, reviews logic/reasoning, examines feasibility of solution, and weighs impacts of solution.
Benchmark

Evaluation of solutions is superficial (for example, contains cursory, surface level explanation) and includes the following: considers history of problem, reviews logic/reasoning, examines feasibility of solution, and weighs impacts of solution.
Implement Solution
Capstone

Implements the solution in a manner that addresses thoroughly and deeply multiple contextual factors of the problem.
Milestone

Implements the solution in a manner that addresses multiple contextual factors of the problem in a surface manner.
Milestone

Implements the solution in a manner that addresses the problem statement but ignores relevant contextual factors.
Benchmark

Implements the solution in a manner that does not directly address the problem statement.
Evaluate Outcomes
Capstone

Reviews results relative to the problem defined with thorough, specific considerations of need for further work.
Milestone

Reviews results relative to the problem defined with some consideration of need for further work.
Milestone

Reviews results in terms of the problem defined with little, if any, consideration of need for further work.
Benchmark

Reviews results superficially in terms of the problem defined with no consideration of need for further work.
