"I recommend this as a great addition for your library either if you are currently involved or will be involved in your institutions' or departments' assessment efforts. It is informative regardless of the size of your institution and is a candid and comprehensive volume as the title suggests on coming to terms with student outcomes assessment."-- "NACADA Journal (National Academic Advising Association)" (2/1/2011 12:00:00 AM)
"The contributors, faculty and administrators from 16 campuses who recont the ups and downs of efforts to put assessment into practice in departments and general education programs, on the campus level and system wide... These are stories of people working against the grain, many told in a lightly ironic mode... While harrowing, the tales in this collection include some remarkable inventions. It's hard to imagine that students won't someday benefit from the massive efforts this volume describes. This sobering but engaging book suggests that the result of its success in moblizing genuine inquiry into learning that matters is key to whether the assessment movement will nuture flowers or only thorns."-- "Change Magazine" (10/1/2011 12:00:00 AM)
