A Classic

Cross and Angelo is a classic text that all professors should have in their teaching and learning library. The techniques are concrete, simple, and powerful. This is not a theory book but truly a handbook of techniques that will not only improve your teaching but more importantly improve your students' learning.

Amazing even if you don't use it as originally intended.

This book is a great explanation of and suggestions for evaluating teaching and learning primarily at the college level. In college, a professor or instructor may have hundreds of students unless you teach a very rare subject or at are a very small school. These fast and often fun exercises are a neat way to figure out how much your students are learning and how to teach better. They could also be used as graded tests but primarily the book was intended for pure assessment. Since students, over-booked with classes in the age of a flat-fee system, may resent too much gradeless assessment, you'll have to read the atmosphere of your own classes and decide how best to use this.

A great book to help make you a great teacher

I was lucky enough to be given this wonderful book. It is worth it's weight in gold. It is PACKED with ideas and instruction in the art of assessment (from testing to group response). It is a mammouth book, divided into clear sections with ready-to-use examples for each assessment technique explored. Keep this one by your side as you attempt to deduce if your students have "gotten it." Works for ALL disciplines, including science and math. Try one new assessment technique a week and see what works for you. The book also helps you design your own. My highest recommendation.Dr. Stefani Koorey, Valencia Community College

It is a nice book to improve learning in the class.

I recommend this book to every faculty member who wish to change the traditional role of teaching and get into more active learning. This text helps one to evaluate their course more effectively. CATs provides feedback to both the students as well as faculty. I highly recommend if you want to make your course more intresting and friendly.

An excellent presentation of formative evaluation techniques

This is a text every secondary and post-secondary teacher should review. Although the title indicates that it is most useful for college teachers, secondary teachers will also find excellent suggestions on how to evaluate their students' achievement, how to confirm learning, and how to build a formative evaluation plan for the content taught.
