Interest in assessing student learning at institutions of higher education— and the need to learn how to do it— skyrocketed in the last two decades of the 20th century and continues to grow into the 21st century. This book summarizes current thinking on the practice of assessing student learning in a comprehensive, accessible, and useful fashion. Short on background and theory and long on practical advice, this is a plainspoken, informally written book designed to provide sensible guidance for assessment practitioners on virtually all aspects of student assessment, and for faculty who simply want to improve assessments within their classes.
Assessing Student Learning
presents readers with well–informed principles and options that they can select and adapt to their own circumstances.
