Summary: "Assessing student learning effectively has become a priority in higher education.

It helps faculty and administrators use benchmarks not only to assess outcomes of student learning, but to program assessment, evaluate student learning, create meaningful faculty scholarship, ensure quality teaching, and forge connection to the community"--Provided by publisher.
