Suskie's book responds to increasing interest in assessing student learning in higher education, attributing this interest to two trends: the increasingly rigorous demands of accrediting institutions and the commitment to active, learning-centered higher education. Assessment determines the success of our efforts to create such an environment and helps us to become even more effective. Suskie's book provides practical advice on how to the job of assessment and discussion will be centered on discovering methods for adopting and adapting solid assessment strategies.
