The goal in creating this publication is to make available for the assessment public a set of examples implemented in one of the first engineering schools to develop assessment in the United States. The book presents the rationale, objectives and process for anumber of evaluation projects and constitutes a guide for assessment practitioners engaged in innovative work at their institutions. It will help you come to terms with methodological and practical questions related to assessment as they develop in practice.Educated in Madrid and New York, Gerardo del Cerro holds Ph.D.s in the social sciences from the New School for Social Research in New York and the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, and a MFA in Classical Piano from the Madrid Royal Conservatory.
