Perhaps the authors' are preaching to the converted with me because I found a lot of similarity in their approaches to those of my own. I believe serious questions need to be asked about the validity and usefulness of some HEI assessments. This book does just that. What is the use of an exam for example if students just plough through them then wait for a mark? Where is the deep level learning in that form of assessment? I enjoyed reading how different disciplines utilise creative assessment tools with real learning purposes. I will return to this book again and again as I continue to develop my programmes in HEIs and try and encourage colleagues there is more to assessment than 'testing'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good examples provided 3 Jun. 2013
By Lotus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I purchased this text on behalf of our educational design team, who are currently reviewing assessments for group work and peer evaluation. The book is very comprehensive and gives an overview of theory and practice. It provides lots of examples to illustrate the various types of assessment. It is also scholarly with lots of references to the literature - the reference list is excellent for further reading.

1.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive 20 May 2013
By Marianne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am very interested in how to effectively use assessment for learning. The authors may have some insights on how to implement this. If they had written a ten-page article, they could have communicated those insights effectively. But reading this book you read the same thing over and over again. I tried to finish the book, but could not justify wasting any more time after having completed a little more than 1/2 of the book.
