Assessing Student Learning: A Common Sense Guide
Interest in assessing student learning at institutions of higher education—and the need to learn how to do it—continues to gather the attention and support begun nearly 30 years ago. This book summarizes contemporary thinking on the practice of assessing student learning in a comprehensive, accessible, and useful fashion. This book is short on background and theory and long on practical advice. Plainspoken and informally written, it offers sensible guidance for assessment practitioners on all aspects of student assessment and for faculty who simply want to improve assessment within their classrooms. Assessing Student Learning presents readers with well-informed principles and options that they can select and adapt to their own circumstances.
