This article presents an overview of the book Scholarship Assessed, by C. E. Glassick et al. The book is an Ernest Boyer project of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. The work is clearly designed to extend the original argument made in the book Scholarship Reconsidered, which builds the case for extending the boundaries of what counts as scholarly activity for the nation's faculty at colleges and universities. The text is divided into five chapters that follow Boyer's prologue. In addition, the text attempts to address the concerns raised by Boyer and to develop a general understanding of how all brands of scholarship may be evaluated and assessed in the academy.
