Tan); "Library Information Skills and Standardized Achievement Tests" (Mary M. Jackson); "From Indicators of Quantity to Measures of Effectiveness: Ensuring 'Information Power's' Mission" (Robert E. Berkowitz); "Expanding the Evaluation Role in the Critical-Thinking Curriculum" (Daniel Callison); "Assessing the Library Research Process" (Carol Collier Kuhlthau); "Alternative Assessment: Promises and Pitfalls" (Delia Neuman); "Assessment of Student Performance: The Fourth Step in the Instructional Design Process" (Barbara K.
