Praise for the Third Edition:

ìWithout question, this book should be on every nurse educator's bookshelf.î
--Nursing Education Perspectives

The ìgold standardî for evaluation and testing in nursing education, this revision helps educators measure and evaluate the level of learning that their students have achieved and presents fundamental concepts of what constitutes reliable tools and rubrics for measuring studentsí classroom and clinical performance. It describes how to develop a test blueprint and to assemble, administer, write, and score all types of tests and test questions, and analyze tests and test performance for both classroom and clinical evaluation. It includes guidelines for preventing cheating, and for conducting productive posttest discussions. The book offers strategies for evaluating higher cognitive levels of learning and for evaluating written assignments with sample scoring rubrics. The book explores important social, ethical, and legal issues associated with testing and evaluation.
