Editorial Reviews

`Innovative testing/grading practices directed to the goal of improved student learning...These books are not full of assessment theory, but rather loaded with practical examples...forge some new pathways for the learning quest, and are worthy of your time and effort.' The American Biology Teacher, April 1998
