The latest UCAT staff favorite is referenced quite a lot in our workshops and office conversations: Classroom Assessment Techniques: A Handbook for College Teachers, by Thomas A. Angelo and K. Patricia Cross. This book takes a comprehensive look at course and assignment design, and It’s much more thought-provoking than its dry title suggests.
Tom Angelo is on campus March 8, so this is a nice complement to his visit.
Here’s a description of the book from the publisher:
“This revised and greatly expanded edition of the 1988 handbook offers teachers at all levels of experience detailed, how-to advice on classroom assessment—from what it is and how it works to planning, implementing, and analyzing assessment projects. The authors illustrate their approach through twelve case studies that detail the real-life classroom experiences of teachers carrying out successful classroom assessment projects.”
