Are Your Students Information Literate? Tips and Tools for Assessing Student Learning

Date: Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Time: 11:30 am – 12:30 pm

Where: RT 401

Assessments are about more than just grades. Sound assessment practices can be used to gauge students’ levels of understanding at the start of the semester, identify gaps in knowledge that need to be addressed, provide data on student learning, and guide improvements in the curriculum.  This session will explore assessment techniques and tools that can be used to assess students’ mastery of information literacy threshold concepts and their ability to apply what they have learned.  The session will include a brief review of writing good student learning outcomes as the foundation of meaningful assessment.

Faculty who are teaching or considering teaching a general education course that designates information literacy as a learning objective as well as faculty interested in learning more about integrating information literacy into their courses are encouraged to attend.
