Clouder, L. et al (Eds.). Improving student engagement and development through assessment: Theory and practice in higher education. Routledge, New York, 2012. ISBN: 978-0-415-61820-5. Pages: 218.
Published in the middle of May, this collection of articles presents a unique focus on the relationship between assessment and engagement, while providing successful best practice examples. Against a backdrop of massification and the associated increase in student diversity there is an escalating requirement for personalized, technology driven learning in higher education. In addition, the advent of student fees has promoted a consumer culture resulting in students having an increasingly powerful voice in shaping curricula to their own requirements. Using examples from a variety of institutions worldwide this edited collection provides a well-researched evidence base of current thinking and developments in assessment practices in higher education.Routledge
