Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"As the research in college classroom assessment continues to grow, college instructors are likely to need a brief, yet comprehensive review of the literature. This monograph presents information in a concise, well-organized, and easily understood manner. Both first year and concerned college instructors are likely to find this monograph to be a valuable resource for improving their classroom assessment practices." —Barbara M. Moskal, assistant professor of mathematical and computer science, Colorado School of Mines

"This is an excellent, well-written, and thorough analysis of the major issues relevant to classroom assessment in higher education." —Catherine S. Taylor, associate professor of education, University of Washington

"Brookhart eschews unnecessary jargon and provides illuminating and interesting examples from a wide variety of settings. In my opinion, The Art and Science of Classroom Assessment can be a very valuable resource for college faculty who want a clear and concise overview of the latest information about asessment. I believe that the faculty, in particular, will find its information very useful as they seek to plan their courses and to develop effective ways of assessing their students' performance. I was particularly impressed with the section on creating rubrics for evaluating essays, whether on exams or assignments." —Jean E. Hunter, professor of history, Duquesne University

"The Art and Science of Classroom Assessment presents a combination of common sense and a high quality scholarly review." —Richard J. Stiggins, president, Assessment Training Institute

Summarizes broadly applicable assessment principles to enhance college instruction and feedback about students' achievement through sample analyses, checklists, performance rubrics, essays, and empirical studies about grading in college classrooms. Some of the references are available through the ERIC Document Reproduction Service. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
