There is a need for a book that will help higher education professionals understand the basics of assessment online and apply those principles through creative assessment practices. This book meets that challenge and includes the use of case studies, authentic assessments based in real-life application of concepts, and collaborative activities that move away from the traditional use of tests and quizzes that assess amount of information retained rather than quality of student learning. Written for instructors who design and teach online courses along with instructional designers who develop online courses.
