--Doody's

This 3rd edition. . . .has again given us philosophical, theoretical and social/ethical frameworks for understanding assessment and measurement, as well as fundamental knowledge to develop evaluation tools for individual students and academic programs."

All teachers need to assess learning. But often, teachers are not well prepared to carry out the tasks related to evaluation and testing. This third edition of Evaluation and Testing in Nursing Education serves as an authoritative resource for teachers in nursing education programs and health care agencies. Graduate students preparing for their roles as nurse educators will also want to add this book to their collection.

As an inspiring, award-winning title, this book presents a comprehensive list of all the tools required to measure students' classroom and clinical performance. The newly revised edition sets forth expanded coverage on essential concepts of evaluation, measurement, and testing in nursing education; quality standards of effective measurement instruments; how to write all types of test items and establish clinical performance parameters and benchmarks; and how to evaluate critical thinking in written assignments and clinical performance.

Special features:

  • The steps involved in test construction, with guidelines on how to develop test length, test difficulty, item formats, and scoring procedures
  • Guidelines for assembling and administering a test, including design rules and suggestions for reproducing the test
  • Strategies for writing multiple-choice and multiple-response items
  • How to develop test items that prepare students for licensure and certification examinations

Like its popular predecessors, this text offers a seamless blending of theoretical and practical insight on evaluation and testing in nursing education, thus serving as an invaluable resource for both educators and students."

From the Publisher:

"Nothing is more important to the educational process than effective testing and evaluation, yet few nurse educators (faculty??? better word??) have any formal academic preparation or substantive expertise in the topic. However, without a thorough understanding of how to correctly structure, interpret, manage the process of evaluating, measuring, and testing, teachers (faculty??? better word??) cannot prove that their work has really made a difference. This book is a practical guide for teachers (faculty??? better word??) to assure that the time that is spent in testing, measurement, and evaluation produces valid and reliable information. From planning a classroom test, to creative assessment approaches, to ethical, legal, and social issues related to testing and measurement, both novice and expert teachers (faculty??? better word??) will find this book an invaluable compendium of useful strategies."

- Suzanne P. Smith, EdD, RN, FAAN Editor-in-Chief, Nurse Educator
