Using standards rubrics to assure graduate capabilities within the context of undergraduate liberal arts programmes

Angus Brook, Sandra Lynch, Moira Debono


This paper discusses the challenges and opportunities that have arisen out of developing graduate capability standards rubrics for the LOGOS Programme; a liberal education core curriculum programme in philosophy, ethics, and theology that all students at the University of Notre Dame Australia are required to undertake. The paper will focus upon the specific challenges which face liberal education Catholic universities in promoting, fostering and forming graduate attributes amongst their students. In doing so, we will attempt to demonstrate the usefulness of developing standards rubrics as a basis for careful and systematic review of our pedagogical approach, curriculum and assessment design oriented towards assuring graduate attributes and capabilities.
