2014 Conference Highlights: Measuring Students’ Information Literacy Skills

Measuring Students’ Information Literacy Skills: An Assessment Strategy
Thursday, May 8
4:45-5:45pm

Librarians sometimes make assumptions about what students know concerning information literacy and we let those assumptions inform what we do in the classroom. Librarians at the University of Baltimore wanted to know for sure, but didn’t have much assessment experience. Come to this session to hear how we designed a baseline assessment, what we’ve learned about students in the freshman and junior year, and how we will use that information to inform our teaching.

This program is worth 1 contact hour of continuing education.
