- New chapters on e-assessment, the learner′s perspective on assessment and learning and the influence of assessment on how we value learning


- Teacher-friendly assessment topics


- Practical examples and chapter summaries throughout



This book is useful to teacher educators and researchers on postgraduate courses in education, teaching, learning and assessment.
