N. Ebner, J. Coben & C. Honeyman (Eds.), Assessing our Students, Assessing Ourselves: Vol.3 in the Rethinking Negotiation Teaching Series. St Paul, MN: DRI Press (2012)
For many students, the first moment when “the rubber hits the road” in their learning is when they themselves hit the road, at a multi-institution competition. Across a remarkable array of institutions and cultures, the authors assess what has been learned about assessing students in competition environments. Noting that by definition, a competition requires winners they suggest that students might be judged either by the “outcome” of the negotiation, or, either in combination with outcome or exclusively, by criteria more related to “style and process,” in the way that competitions in gymnastics, figure skating and diving are judged.
