From the Publisher"This is a welcome second edition for Maki's well-known tome on assessment and learning. This volume stands out as a sentinel work in the area for three reasons. First, it is a comprehensive account of sustainable assessment across educational institutions. In this regard it looks at assessment not so much as something that occurs in universitites and colleges but as something that defines them. Second, it provides a range of practical strategies that have been well tested at the "coalface" of learning, that is, with students in classrooms and other educational settings. Finally, it provides a well-grounded practical focus without sacraficing conceptual depth. The book provides a wealth of theoretical material which creates and sustains a strong context for learning. This book is highly recommended."
"Peggy Maki's text as a whole represents a comprehensive and realist approach to assessment and constructs a notion of assessment that is an uncommon blend of the pragmatic and sustainable, meaningful and valuable, theoretical and practical. Maki has artistically drawn together esoteric, philosophical foundations with pragmatic, real-world applications from which nearly any assessment practitioner will benefit... The second edition of Assessing for Learning verges on being a seminal work in higher education assessment scholarship."
