    The Nurse Educators Guide to Assessing Learning Outcomes, Fourth EditionNurse educators need to craft reliable and valid assessment materials, including multiple-choice exams, true-false tests, matching exercises, and essay responses. Just published The Nurse Educator's Guide to Assessing Learning Outcomes, Fourth Edition by Mary E. McDonald provides instructors with a comprehensive, in-depth guide to creating effective classroom exams.

    With hundreds of sample test questions and detailed scoring rubrics, it is an invaluable resource for educators preparing their students for successful careers in nursing. In addition, the text delves into the pedagogy behind Bloom's taxonomy, how to gauge the difficulty level of questions, and how to revise questions to increase their cognitive challenge. It also helps nurse educators develop questions that require students to think critically and features a chapter on NCLEX test question development.

    New to the Fourth Edition:

    • A new appendix covering more than 200 sample item stems for client needs
    • Expanded overviews of Bloom's original and revised taxonomies
    • Additional questions targeted to NCLEX preparation
    • Updated references and sample questions
