Pop quiz: Do you use this evaluation method? In 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
Some things should never go out of style. In the midst of an impressive array of new tools, Ebner and Efron argue that there is still a role for a surprisingly basic tool which has been underused in our field. The quiz is a device to which most students have been subjected many times before they take a course in negotiation. Few other tools are so well adapted to the basic educational need to find out quickly if the student «knows» something that has been presented as fact. Surprisingly, however, Ebner and Efron find few teachers of negotiation using this tool. They examine why this might be, and suggest strategies suited to our field.
