In 2011 more than 60 of the world’s leading negotiation scholars gathered in Beijing for the Rethinking Negotiation Teaching project’s third and final international conference. The event, like the preceding conferences in Rome and Istanbul, was designed to inspire a diverse and energetic group of scholars to push forward their thinking on what is taught and how it is taught in contemporary negotiation courses.

The resulting productivity required two volumes. This one is devoted to the challenge of assessment. The choice and application of assessment methods can have a tangible effect on student learning, and this is translated here into an operational principle: that intentional use of adroitly chosen assessment methods can lead to more precise, more practical and even “deeper” learning. This volume’s chapters suggest how, in a variety of ways. The collection is presented not as a closed list of evaluation methods, but as a half-filled toolbox. Teachers are invited to consider and try out a mixture of these methods - and to view the creativity they involve as an invitation to create (and share) their own new, and we hope, increasingly sophisticated tools.
