The fifth edition expands content on standardized tests, including how to write test items for licensure and certification exam prep, and provides new information on developing rubrics for assessing written assignments.

The fifth edition is distinguished from other texts by its focus on developing a framework that integrates all types of evaluation in a nursing program.
