Assessing Student Learning : A Common Sense by Linda SuskieMany faculty and administrators today struggle with three underlying concepts which will be addressed explicitly and repeatedly throughout the book: (1) assessment is an integral part of the teaching/learning process rather than a stand-alone activity, (2) assessment is all about improving how we help students learn, not an end in itself, and (3) learning activities throughout the institution should be appropriately integrated. This Third Edition focuses on emerging needs and ideas in higher education assessment, including how to assess student learning in specific settings such as the classroom, general education curricula, undergraduate and graduate programs, co-curricular and student development programs, and online programs. Additionally chapters from the previous edition will be updated with new information on rubrics and integrating assessment information for the accreditation process. Since the publication of the Second Edition, many new assessment resources have emerged, including books, models, published instruments, technologies, and research. Assessing Student Learning, Third Edition will include these new tools and resources.
