Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is felt that this resource will be especially welcomed by administrators, program directors, and educators who aim to develop structures, processes and outcomes that reflect learning-centered academic environments…" (Occupational Therapy in Health Care) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"All of us engaged in assessing student learning will benefit from Linda Suskie's continued work to define and refine assessment concepts and strategies. She asks, and answers, the hard questions we all need to address to plan and implement a successful assessment program."—Randy L. Swing, executive director, Association for Institutional Research

"Once again, Linda Suskie provides a clear and comprehensive guide to assessment. Her truly commonsense approach distills vast amounts of scholarship on the topic and provides excellent examples of good practice. This book will be an invaluable resource to faculty and administrators working on assessment."—Madeleine F. Green, vice president for international initiatives, American Council on Education

"This book is a self-contained manual to assist anyone with the implementation of outcomes-based assessment. I highly recommend it to all of my students because Linda Suskie illustrates each step in great detail and answers common assessment questions clearly. I own two copies of the first edition, because one is always in use by one or more of my colleagues." —Marilee J. Bresciani, associate professor, Administration, Rehabilitation, and Postsecondary Education, and codirector, Center for Educational Leadership, Innovation, and Policy, San Diego State University

This book was required for one of my courses, but it's very easy to understand, and the tables are a great tool. It's not great for how to do program or services assessment, but is very good for assessing classroom learning.
