Product description

From the Back Cover


In this thoroughly revised edition of Assessment Essentials, the bestselling text on outcomes assessment in higher education, you will find, in a familiar framework, nearly all new material, examples from more than 100 campuses, and indispensable descriptions of direct and indirect assessment methods that have helped to educate faculty, staff, and students about assessment. Leading authorities Trudy Banta and Catherine Palomba draw on research, standards, and best practices to address the timeliest issues in higher education accountability. This edition includes information on the use of electronic portfolios, rubrics and course-embedded assessment, assessment in student affairs, and how to assess institutional effectiveness.

“It’s hard to improve on a classic, but Banta and Palomba have done so with this updated edition of Assessment Essentials, which is replete with examples of what effective assessment work looks like in different types of institutions.”
—George D. Kuh, director, National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment, and adjunct professor, University of Illinois and Indiana University

“Banta and Palomba’s new edition of Assessment Essentials covers a wide range of current topics that are crucial for faculty, staff, and administrators to follow as they strive to sustain effective assessments. I highly recommend this comprehensive resource for academic leaders and others in higher education who want to maintain the quality of their assessment efforts.”
—Elizabeth A. Jones, professor of education and doctoral program director, Holy Family University

“A sweeping update that brilliantly reflects the evolution of the field. Institutions should use it to build the assessment infrastructure they will need in the brave new world of prior learning assessment and competency-based education.”
—Barbara D. Wright, vice president, WASC Senior College and University Commission
