Overview

Online Assessment, Measurement and Evaluation: Emerging Practices provides a view of the possibilities and challenges facing online educators and evaluators in the 21st Century. As technology evolves and online measurement and assessment follow, Online Assessment, Measurement and Evaluation: Emerging Practices uses established evaluation principles to employ new tools in evaluation systems that support stakeholders, clarify values and definitions of the evaluation methods, encourage thought about important questions, and refresh the readers' memories of contexts and backgrounds. This book also adheres to evaluation standards of feasibility, propriety, utility, and accuracy in order to help participants realize that technical issues and methods are only worthwhile when they are in the service of helping people make thoughtful choices.
