Online Assessment, Measurement and Evaluation: Emerging Practices provides a view of the possibilities and challenges facing online educators and evaluators in the 21st Century.
As technology evolves and online measurement and assessment follow, Online Assessment, Measurement and Evaluation: Emerging Practices uses established evaluation principles to employ new tools in evaluation systems that support stakeholders, clarify values and definitions of the evaluation methods, encourage thought about important questions, and refresh the readers' memories of contexts and backgrounds. This book also adheres to evaluation standards of feasibility, propriety, utility, and accuracy in order to help participants realize that technical issues and methods are only worthwhile when they are in the service of helping people make thoughtful choices.

By focusing his editorial efforts on higher education settings, Williams creates a snapshot in time of where online assessment efforts are headed. This gives anyone currently wondering how to evaluate their own programs several viable models to replicate. [The Online Assessment and Measurement] books have a place in the literature of education and deserve to be read. There are many good ideas raised in these books that should be highlighted and learned from."
