From the Publisher"This is an important tool in the movement to transform higher education. It recognizes and celebrates the diversity of American higher education by encouraging institutions to define for themselves the characteristics of effective assessment practices and develop genuine, meaningful processes that will contribute to the improvement of teaching, learning, and student development. It makes an important contribution to the scholarship of assessment by providing a research-based framework for merging student learning assessment processes with cyclical academic program review processes."
The compendium of ideas and activities to guide outcomes assessment will be useful to faculty and staff charged with determining the impact of their efforts. The strength and appeal of the volume are the variety of examples of good practices from different types of institutions assessing different aspects of their educational programs.
