Classroom Assessment Techniques

Is anyone reading this familiar with classroom assessment techniques, particularly for software used in teaching computer science and mathematics?

I have the Angelo and Cross book, and have read most of it, but for purposes of evaluating educational software, a lot of it is inapplicable.

Any advice would be appreciated.




Edit, 10:30 CDT: Commented upon by bktheirregular (here), butterflykiki (here), celli (here), and many others: here we go again with the political eucharist.
The bishop of Colorado's second-largest Roman Catholic diocese has issued a pastoral letter saying Catholics cannot receive Communion if they vote for politicians who support abortion rights, stem-cell research, euthanasia or gay marriage.


Emphasis added above. I haven't seen the remarks of jereeza (from predominantly Catholic Croatia) or andrewwyld yet, but this does not seem to bode well. Advocacy is one thing, but denying communion on the basis of voting history? Aside from the implausibility of carrying out the policy, that would seem to be crossing rather a lot of lines.

...but what's the Eucharistic status of a Catholic who votes for politicians who support war, injustice, capital punishment, and...

I'd like to find out where my diocese, and my mother's diocese, stand or fall on this topic. If I'm going to need to make a scene, I'd like to have a little time to prepare.

Well, the Catholic Church used to itself execute people for quite a while.

And my favorite line of that page is "Today, at the end of the 20th century, American society, unlike any other society in the world, offers an extraordinary degree of personal freedom."

Hehehehe....

How in the world would they enforce that? "In the name of the Father, the Son, the Holy Ghost and ultra-conservative politics....."
