5.0 out of 5 stars It's a book! June 20, 2014
By Adam
Well, the only reason why you purchase one of these books is for school. Mine was in okay condition. You could see it had been used a couple of times.

Could have been better. Was high lighting done in the book. Do understand that it is a used book but don't recall that it was disclosed.

Needed this book for my class, and it was MUCH cheaper through Amazon. It was actually cheaper to buy this book than it was to rent it for the semester. Great book for the class.

1.0 out of 5 stars FLUNKS Test Design 101 With Unethical Questions November 11, 2013
I rented this from a popular source. Thank God.

As an academic of achievement myself, as well as published author and former Head of Department (with training in Test Design at the college level), I have now been on the "receiving end" of this textbook as a student for this past term. More textbook authors should try it and reverse their roles; especially this author and his publisher. They needed my help with editing and test question design ... badly.

While the kind of general overview of legal topics and vocabulary is somewhat of value, the testing side is badly deficient, if not unethically done in this book. There are "homework" questions for which the answer is not found in the chapter text. It is unethical to grade students on that (but commonly done, by UNprofessionals). There is no need for any textbook author to make that mistake.

The "Case Questions" and "exams" provided by the author/publisher(?) are particularly bad and unethical. Many of them are what we, in professional test design, call "shoddy" or "sloppy." They are badly written and lacking in precision. For any Instructor: You BETTER use them with extreme caution. I'd recommend modifying them to your own real-world case history and knowledge base, and then grading with a generous flexibility of interpretation and evidences of creative thinking; that, or just throw them out, entirely. A "Yes" or "No" grading system for those questions is inappropriate for any honest academic professional.

The overly "semantic"-oriented chapter and test questions are not even accurately answered/graded by the author/publisher. What a big deal if the real world does not comply, word-for-word, with HIS text and specific definition of a concept!

This text ought to be either fixed or eliminated from academia.
