Reviews and Testimonials
The purpose of the research in this book, then, is to help educators make their own assessment efforts more articulate and systematic by demonstrating applied research in cases and initiatives.
– Christopher S. Schreiner, University of Guam, Guam
There is a stunning range of inquiry in this well-edited book, which certainly exceeds the bounds of the usual handbook in so far as it is always readable and stimulating. Every department chair and assessment coordinator needs a copy, but so do faculty members seeking to get aboard the assessment train that has already left the station. Bravo to IGI Global and the editor for gathering such exceptional essays and articles under one cover!
– Dr. Michel Pharand, The Disraeli Project, Queen's University, Canada
The chapters together focus on the development of the local needs of each program and institution, with some describing the implications for other higher education contexts. While many of the chapters remark on the complexity of designing, implementing, and assessing assessment methods and programs, these processes are seen as lively, dynamic, and multifaceted. [...] I recommend this book for those who find themselves in the thick of assessment ecologies, who desire to use its goals of growth and development within their administrative or teaching contexts.
