Assessment Practice in Student Affairs: An Applications Manual
A must read for anyone interested in understanding and developing assessments that can demonstrate the efficacy of their programs and services. A perfect sequel to 'Assessment in Student Affairs.' - Charles C. Schroeder, vice chancellor for student affairs, University of Missouri Columbia Upcraft and Schuh tell us when, where, how, and why we should conduct assessments differently within a wide variety of student service departments. Read and apply! - Gary R. Hanson, professor, Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, Arizona State University. When Assessment in Student Affairs first appeared in 1996, readers found a practical context for viewing the power of assessment across the domain of student services. Since then, John H. Schuh and M. Lee Upcraft have received numerous requests for more specific guidance to assessing and communicating the value of student affairs. This manual continues the work begun in their earlier book and provides a full range of tools for conducting effective assessments. The authors begin with an overview of the assessment process and then detail a range of methodologies, approaches, and issues - explaining how to use them and when to recruit expertise from other campus sources. Drawing from the latest practice and a wealth of case studies, they discuss: qualitative assessment, including how to conduct focus groups; quantitative assessment, including how to select and design instruments; data collection and analysis, including mailed questionnaires, telephone surveys, and Web-based surveys; assessing diverse needs, satisfaction, outcomes, environments, cost effectiveness, and accreditation; specialized assessment studies, including how to review dropouts, graduates, academic success, and group educational programs; select programs in student services, including first-year programs, recreation programs, financial aid, admissions, residence halls, college unions, health services, career services, counseling services, judicial affairs, and Greek life; and organizational and ethical approaches to assessment.

Creating Learning Communities - A Practical Guide to Winning Support, Organizing for Change & Implementing Programs (Paper Only): A Practical Guide to Winning Support, Organizing for Change, and Implementing Programs
One of the most powerful ideas in higher education today is transforming campuses into learning communities. At last, Shapiro and Levine have given us-faculty, students, and administrators-a handbook on how to accomplish this. It is one of those too rare and much-needed volumes on translating theory into practice by authors who have actually done it. -Arthur Levine, president, Teachers College, Columbia University Shapiro and Levine convince us that learning communities address what we now know about how students learn inside and outside the classroom. Read this book for conceptual rationale, practical answers to implementation questions, and passionate voices that speak for a social contract among students, faculty members, and institutions, a contract enacted and assessed for the benefit of all. -Barbara L. Cambridge, director, Teaching Initiatives, American Association for Higher Education In recent years, learning communities-a curricular innovation that integrates different facets of the undergraduate experience to enhance and enrich learning-have become the most promising new strategy for promoting student success and satisfaction in college. Now campus professionals have a practical, insightful guide to the essentials of this timely and rewarding new program area, including how to design, fund, staff, manage, and integrate learning communities into different campuses. Drawing from their own experience as well as from experiences of campuses around the country, Nancy S. Shapiro and Jodi H. Levine present a pragmatic blueprint for creating a learning community that can be adapted to almost any campus culture-including specific guidance ranging from who should be placed on planning committees to samples of syllabi for interdisciplinary courses, sample clusters of classes, monthly activity calendars, lists of competencies and expected student outcomes, and other operational program models.

All Children Can Learn: Lessons from the Kentucky Reform Experience
When the Kentucky Supreme Court ruled that the state's public school system was unconstitutional, it set in motion forces that altered the nature and quality of education, not only in Kentucky but in the entire country. Here is a fascinating story of a critical episode-a determined legislature, skilled education leadership, and sometimes just plain luck-that everyone interested in education should read. -Frank Newman, visiting professor of public policy and sociology, Brown University, and Julius and Rosa Sachs Lecturer, Teachers College, Columbia University The comprehensive and far-reaching reforms in Kentucky have been watched more than those in any other state. This book contains contributions from some of the most knowledgeable watchers-key researchers who have been following the state's progress and judging its reform results. It's an important book for everyone interested in state education policy and its effects on practice. -Susan H. Fuhrman, dean, Penn Graduate School of Education, University of Pennsylvania As a comprehensive look at Kentucky's systemic education reform, All Children Can Learn is crucial reading for everyone engaged in trying to make public school reform work, as well as for anyone who doesn't think reform can work. This book thoughtfully examines Kentucky's dramatic initiatives to change schools statewide, providing guideposts for the next school district or state brave enough to undertake large-scale education change. -Pascal D. Forgione, superintendent, Austin Independent School District In 1990, Kentucky passed the Kentucky Education Reform Act (KERA), a landmark statute emerging from a Supreme Court decision that declared the state's K-12 education system to be inadequate, inequitable, and inefficient. The law established a new department of education, mandated statewide learning goals and performance assessments, and provided local schools with new authority over curriculum, instructional practice, and scheduling. In addition, this law equalized funding across school districts, provided direct assistance to schools with declining test scores, and created a new system of school governance that involved principals, teachers, and parents. Now educators, school board members, and policymakers can refer to a single volume for key lessons from the nation's most comprehensive and longest-running school reform model. Written by a nationally prominent group of educators, researchers, and policy analysts, All Children Can Learn presents important research findings from the Kentucky reforms, examines major program elements, and analyzes initiatives that worked or didn't work. Throughout the book, the authors explore the challenges of implementing statewide school change initiatives, offer sound advice for overcoming reform hurdles, and share valuable recommendations for future policy and practice. Reform-minded educators from every type of community will find valuable insights as they contemplate similar changes. From professional development to parent/community outreach, All Children Can Learn shows that America can indeed create better public schools. The Editors Roger S. Pankratz is professor and former associate dean in the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences at Western Kentucky University and director of the Renaissance Group Institution's Partnership for Improving Teacher Quality. During the design of KERA, he served as executive director of the Governor's Council for School Performance Standards, and later as executive director of the Kentucky Institute for Education Research, an independent nonprofit agency created to study and evaluate Kentucky's school reform initiatives. Joseph Petrosko is professor of education at the University of Louisville, codirector of the University of Louisville Nystrand Center of Excellence in Education, and codirector of the Kentucky Institute for Education Research.

Ethical Dimensions of College & University Teaching Issue 66 - New Directions for Teaching & Learning (Paper Only)
This volume focuses on the ethical dimensions of teaching, bringing fresh insights and perspectives to inform ongoing discussions of ethics among faculty colleagues, administrators, and students. From these chapters emerges a dominant principle: responsibility to students is directly related to understanding of one's ethical self, and the first step in establishing that ethical identity is self-reflection. By teaching ethically, faculty members model and advocate appropriate behavior to students in a voice more effective than any proclamation. They also answer calls for accountability from the public, the press, and politicians. In all, teaching ethically requires transformations of structures, attitudes, and persons--faculty as well as students--if faculty are to meet fully their responsibilities to themselves, to their students, and to society. This is the 66th issue of New Directions for Teaching and Learning.
