The book includes an all-new Learning Goals Inventory, as well as more than 35 customizable assessment rubrics, to help teachers determine significant learning goals and appropriate techniques. This book also provides access to a downloadable worksheet to guide teachers through the seven steps of the Learning Assessment Techniques planning and implementation cycle.

College teachers today are under increased pressure to teach effectively and provide evidence of what, and how well, students are learning. An invaluable asset for college teachers of any subject,Learning Assessment Techniques provides a practical framework for seamlessly integrating teaching, learning, and assessment.
