In the eleven years since the first edition of this book was published, Classroom Assessment has become increasingly useful in the teacher’s arsenal of tools.

Once the concepts of CAT are understood, the instructor can move on to create course-specific techniques tailored to his or her teaching style and the learning styles of a particular class, thus greatly enhancing the usefulness of Classroom Assessment.

This book is extremely useful and would be a worthy addition to both teachers’ and advisors’ libraries.
