Transformative Learning (TL) Rubrics

Assessment of transformative learning at the University of Central Oklahoma is accomplished through using Transformative Learning (TL) Rubrics. Faculty and professional staff intentionally create learning activities and environments designed to expand students’ perspectives about themselves and others so that they understand the benefit of developing important life skills while they are in college and afterwards as life-long learners.

Using the appropriate TL Rubric, the faculty or professional staff member, evaluates and assigns a TL value to the student’s performance and/or level of engagement in that activity. The assessment counts toward achievement of TL badges and is documented in the Students Transformative Learning Record.  Some criteria used in the TL Rubrics are based on AAC&U VALUE rubrics.


Health & Wellness - Wellness is the integration of many different components (physical, spiritual, environmental, emotional, intellectual, and social/interpersonal) that expand one's potential to live, learn, and work effectively and to make a significant contribution to society.
Leadership - Students develop leadership abilities through study, practice, and by using feedback from others to build capacity and hone skills.
