Assessing College Student Learning: Evaluating Alternative Models, Using Multiple Methods


This publication helps readers make sense of the bewildering array of assessment methods, including standardized or locally designed tests and inventories, indirect methods focused on student self-reports, portfolios, and other performance-based methods. An examination of the psychological theories of learning and achievement that underlie these diverse methods is coupled with practical guidance on how to select among them. Case studies are included to demonstrate the benefits of using multiple methods in combination.
