In this four-hour class, which will be offered in two-hour increments for two successive days, students will explore a range of strategies used to assess information literacy programs.
Designing effective assessment measures for information literacy programs is essential for accountability, improvement, and to maintain the direction of any academic program. In this class, students will explore qualitative and quantitative assessment tools that measure student learning outcomes and the quality of teaching. Students will also investigate and discuss how external factors, including information literacy standards and the accreditation needs of the larger institution drive information literacy assessment practices.
After this class, students will be able to:
- Understand the necessity of assessment in information literacy programs
- Understand and differentiate between different types of assessment including formative and summative, qualitative and quantitative assessment
- Utilize a variety of student-centered, outcomes based assessment techniques for information literacy classes
- Apply a variety of tools and techniques to assess the quality of information literacy instruction
