''When the cook tastes the soup, that's formative; when the guests taste the soup, that's summative.'' --Robert Stake
There are numerous sources of information, ideas, best practices, and assessment tools on the Web. A few worth singling out:
- Internet Resources for Higher Education Outcomes Assessment, a comprehensive list of links maintained at North Carolina State University.
- University of Connecticut Assessment Website. Much of the content of this comprehensive website is also available in pdf as Assessment Notes (143 pages).
Selected Outcomes Assessment Resources from the American Library Association (material and links are not limited to Library assessment).
- A list of assessment references for faculty from Nassau Community College
