This book will serve as a crucial resource for law school administrators, professors, and staff who are interested or involved in assessing their students, courses, teachers, programs, and institutions. The book will draw on current research on assessment and provide a practical approach to comprehensive assessment. The book will include concrete suggestions and examples and communicate in a straightforward accessible style. In addition to writing the majority of the text, the authors will report on effective assessment methods used currently by law schools. Individual chapters will focus on 1) purpose of assessment; 2) assessment fundamentals at all levels; 3) assessing student learning; 4) students' role in assessment; 5) assessing law school curricula and programs; 6) assessing law school teaching; 7) assessing the law school as an institution; and 8) creating a culture of assessment. In addition, the book will provide examples of assessment used by a variety of law schools and include sample forms and checklists to make assessment manageable.
