About this book

This resource manual for college-level science instructors reevaluates the role of testing in their curricula and describes innovative techniques pioneered by other teachers. Part I examines the effects of the following on lower-division courses: changes in exam content, format, and environment; revisions in grading practices; student response; colleague reaction; the sharing of new practices with other interested professionals, and more. The book includes a comprehensive introduction, faculty-composed narratives, commentaries by well-known science educators, and a visual index to 100 more refined innovations.

'Innovative testing/grading practices directed to the goal of improved student learning...These books are not full of assessment theory, but rather loaded with practical examples...forge some new pathways for the learning quest, and are worthy of your time and effort.' The American Biology Teacher, April 1998
