The Oxford Handbook of Undergraduate Psychology Education is dedicated to providing comprehensive coverage of teaching, pedagogy, and professional issues in psychology. The Handbook is designed to help psychology educators at each stage of their careers, from teaching their first courses and developing their careers to serving as department or program administrators. The goal of the Handbook is to provide teachers, educators, researchers, scholars, and administrators in psychology with current, practical advice on course creation, best practices in psychology pedagogy, course content recommendations, teaching methods and classroom management strategies, advice on student advising, and administrative and professional issues, such as managing one's career, chairing the department, organizing the curriculum, and conducting assessment, among other topics. The primary audience for this Handbook is college and university-level psychology teachers (at both two and four-year institutions) at the assistant, associate, and full professor levels, as well as department chairs and other psychology program administrators, who want to improve teaching and learning within their departments. Faculty members in other social science disciplines (e.g., sociology, education, political science) will find material in the Handbook to be applicable or adaptable to their own programs and courses.

The material in this book is intended to help you prepare for the Analytical Writing section of the revised GRE test. During the test, you will be asked to respond in writing to two different types of prompts. One, Analyze an Issue, requires you to follow specific directions as you take a position on a statement, claim, or recommendation. The other, Analyze an Argument, requires you to follow specific instructions as you determine the strengths and/or weaknesses presented in an argument. Since you will have limited time to develop your responses, some preparation for the test will be helpful. The Analytical Writing Measure is just one part of the GRE, but, combined with your scores on the other parts of the test, helps to predict your ability to be successful in graduate school. This book contains twenty five sample Analyze an Issue essays and twenty five sample Analyze an Argument essays along with the rubrics, prompts and tips to use when writing your own essays. The prewriting activities demonstrate how the writer selected a point of view and created evidence to use in developing the responses. You should notice a variety of approaches, from using first-person point of view to employing historical and literary references. These are just suggestions. Your own experience, reading, and course work may lead you to take different approaches. Keep in mind the specific directions, the rubric and your own experience in writing at the college level. If you plan to appear for the GRE on or after August 1, 2011, then this is a must have book for you. From the Front Cover: a) 25 solved Issue topics with strategies to be used as a benchmark b) 25 solved Argument topics with strategies to be used as a benchmark c) Expert Strategies and simplified methods to produce focused responses d) Scoring Guides for Issue and Argument tasks as per the revised GRE Guidelines

Achievement tests play an important role in modern societies. They are used to evaluate schools, to assign students to tracks within schools, and to identify weaknesses in student knowledge. The GED is an achievement test used to grant the status of high school graduate to anyone who passes it. GED recipients currently account for 12 percent of all high school credentials issued each year in the United States. But do achievement tests predict success in life? The Myth of Achievement Tests shows that achievement tests like the GED fail to measure important life skills. James J. Heckman, John Eric Humphries, Tim Kautz, and a group of scholars offer an in-depth exploration of how the GED came to be used throughout the United States and why our reliance on it is dangerous. Drawing on decades of research, the authors show that, while GED recipients score as well on achievement tests as high school graduates who do not enroll in college, high school graduates vastly outperform GED recipients in terms of their earnings, employment opportunities, educational attainment, and health. The authors show that the differences in success between GED recipients and high school graduates are driven by character skills. Achievement tests like the GED do not adequately capture character skills like conscientiousness, perseverance, sociability, and curiosity. These skills are important in predicting a variety of life outcomes. They can be measured, and they can be taught. Using the GED as a case study, the authors explore what achievement tests miss and show the dangers of an educational system based on them. They call for a return to an emphasis on character in our schools, our systems of accountability, and our national dialogue.
