Law School Assessment Practices
The American Bar Association Standard 314 mandates that both formative and summative assessments must be utilized by law schools, and provides definitions for the two different types of assessments; however permits some flexibility to allow variation of assessment programs from school to school. How are law schools developing their assessment practices to meet this standard?
