Description & Coverage
Description:

Educational institutions across the globe have begun to place value on the technology of assessment instruments as they reflect what is valued in learning and deemed worthy of measurement.

The Handbook of Research on Assessment Technologies, Methods, and Applications in Higher Education combines in-depth, multi-disciplinary research in learning assessment to provide a fresh look at its impact on academic life. A significant reference source for practitioners, academicians, and researchers in related fields, this Handbook of Research contains not only technological assessments, but also technologies and assumptions about assessment and learning involving race, cultural diversity, and creativity.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Assessment applications and initiatives
  • Assessment technologies and instruments
  • Collaborations for writing program assessment
  • Communication workshops and e-portfolios
  • Creativity assessment in higher education
  • Effective technologies to assess student learning
  • Faculty-focused environment for assessment
  • Instructional delivery formats
  • Method development for assessing a diversity goal
  • Multi-tier design assessment
  • Reporting race and ethnicity in international assessment
  • Technology of writing assessment and racial validity
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.

– Tabitha Espina Velasco, Ph.D. student, Washington State University, USA
