Reimagining Info Lit Assessment: An Inexpensive and Easy Method for Measuring IL Skill Progression
How information literate are our students? How can we tell if their skills are improving during their college years? Standardized IL tests are available (iCriticalThinking and SAILS), but each requires a considerable investment to participate. Is it possible to achieve results using a separate in-house, and open source software? Yes! This presentation will describe our university’s implementation of this software, the results, and how we are using results to prove effectiveness and improve information literacy instruction.
