Academic Development is critical to
the success of many NEIU students. As we embark on refining our programs,
strategies, and assessment methods, there are several texts that can
provide good background for these efforts. These include:
Banta, T.W., Lund J.P., Black, K.E. & Oblander, F.W. (1996). Assessment
in Practice: Putting Principles to Work on College Campuses. San Francisco:
Miller, A.J., Imrie, B.W. & Cox, K. (1998). Student Assessment
in Higher Education. London: Kogan Page Limited.
Upcraft, M.L. & Schuh, J.H. (1996). Assessment in Student Affairs:
A Guide for Practioners. San Francisco: Jossey-Bass.
In addition to professional references, the following websites may
also be useful.
The University of Albany reports on an outcomes-driven program of academic
advisement. Included in this report are discussion of learning outcomes,
assessment methods such as surveys and focus groups and other instruments.
