Book Title: The Departmental Guide and Record Book for Student Outcomes Assessment and Institutional Effectiveness
Publisher: Agathon Press
Author: James O. Nichols
The Departmental Guide, which has sold more than 25,000 copies in its first two editions, has been revised in this third edition to focus exclusively on assessment of instructional programs. Sections on assessment in graduate and professional programs and an introduction to assessment in general education have been added. There is also expanded coverage of topics encountered as institutions attempt to "close the loop" to include utilization of assessment results to improve student learning.
