Assessment Book Club


Join your AALHE colleagues as we discuss assessment-related books chosen by members. In the meetings, we will discuss the selected book and respond to questions posed by the discussion leader.

The votes are in, and the Summer Book Club is officially kicking off! This summer, we are going to focus on one book with chapters divided over our summer meetings.

The book we will be reading has been selected by popular vote. The book of the summer will be Trends in Assessment by Stephen P. Hundley and Susan Kahn. The book is available at many book retailers online and in brick-and-mortar stores.

Meetings will be held monthly via Zoom with two sessions to accommodate multiple time zones.

If you want to participate, please email Courtney Vengrin at [email protected].

FAQs:

  • What if I've already read this book? - Great! We would like to encourage you to volunteer to help lead the discussion, develop one to two questions, and discuss highlights about the reading. Please reach out to Courtney ([email protected]) to let her know if you are able to participate as a discussion leader.
  • What if I didn't read the reading but I want to hear the discussion? - Great! We can't all talk at once in an hour-long book discussion, so feel free to join in and listen along.
  • What if I can't meet at these times? - With close to 200 people, we can't accommodate everyone's schedule. The Zoom meetings will be recorded for anyone who cannot participate.
