Colleagues -

Does anyone know of a couple of key resources (textbooks, journal articles) on how to assess student learning and student development in Earth sciences or the sciences in general at the postsecondary level?  I am aware of the serc website and the geoscience concepts inventory to assess content knowledge in general geology courses. I am looking more for key references on how to design assessment tools.
