About the Author:

ALEXANDER W. ASTIN is Allan M. Cartter professor of higher education and director of the Higher Education Research Institute, University of California, Los Angeles.

Review:

This invaluable contribution is essential reading for anyone involved in academic assessment from assessment designers to legislative policy makers....Special emphasis is given to the question of how assessment can be used to enlighten professors and administrators about educational practices and policies that enhance the learning process....This is a welcome book for persons involved in the assessment movement - a broad-based effort to make assessment a more meaningful and effective part of higher education's role and function. (The Journal Of Academic Librarianship )
