William E. Sedlacek--one of the nation's leading authorities on the topic of noncognitive assessment--challenges the use of the SAT and other standardized tests as the sole assessment tool for college and university admissions. In Beyond the Big Test, Sedlacek presents a noncognitive assessment method that can be used in concert with the standardized tests. This assessment measures what students know by evaluating what they can do and how they deal with a wide range of problems in different contexts. Beyond the Big Test is filled with examples of assessment tools and illustrative case studies that clearly show how educators have used this innovative method to: Select a class diverse on dimensions of race, gender, and culture in a practical, legal, and ethical wayTeach a diverse class employing techniques that reach all studentsCounsel and advise students in ways that consider their culture, race, and genderAward financial aid to students with potential who do not necessarily have the highest grades and test scoresAssess the readiness of an institution to educate and provide services for a diverse student body
