2014 Conference Highlights: Rev Up Information Literacy Assessment

Each week between now and the 2014 MLA/DLA Conference, we’re highlighting one of the conference sessions sponsored by ACRL MD. The conference will be held from May 7-9 at the Clarion Resort Hotel in Ocean City, MD.  For more information on the conference, please take a look at the conference program (PDF).

Rev Up Information Literacy Assessment: Use Rubrics to Close That Loop!
Wednesday, May 7 (pre-conference)
12:00-4:00pm

This workshop offers “lessons learned” from one institution’s experience through two rounds of RAILS (Rubric Assessment of Information Literacy Skills) project, an IMLS-funded study. Led by RAILS-trained librarians, this session will introduce participants to using rubrics to assess information literacy learning. As RAILS participants discovered, the most important step in working with a rubric is norming. Workshop facilitators will lead participants through norming a rubric and rating student work samples in order to model an information literacy instruction assessment cycle. Return to your instruction with the knowledge and ability to start a rubric assessment initiative.

Lunch will be served in the restaurant from 12:00 to 1:00pm. This program is worth 3 contact hours of continuing education.
