In this book, David and Roger Johnson provide teachers with the practical tools they need to assess the non-academic outcomes of schooling. While the emphasis in schools right now is very much focused on all things academic, teachers and administrators will always be concerned with non-academic outcomes, especially as it pertains to such issues as study skills, coping skills, teamwork, character education, work habits, and reasoning.
