9780838909140: Information Literacy Assessment

Do they get it ? Are students mastering information literacy? ACRL s standards for information literacy provide a solid foundation to help faculty and librarians establish the context for learning. Neely, a top information literacy expert, frames these ACRL standards as benchmarks and provides a toolbox of assessment strategies to demonstrate students learning.

Offering a variety of assignments and assessment tools for those charged with achieving these learning outcomes, she shares best practices and actual sample assessments from a broad range of institutions.

These proven, easily adaptable programs and materials:
* Represent best practices from 27 institutions (US, Canadian, Australian)

* Exemplify the best library-related assignments to strengthen information literacy skills

* Offer proven tips for incorporating the five ACRL standards into instruction

* Go beyond the classroom, with insights on partnering with teachers and administrators

* Explain the basics of automating assessments
From one-shot workshops to librarian-led labs to self-contained courses, academic librarians, LIS educators, researchers and secondary school librarians will learn to create comprehensive information literacy plans and evaluate their students progress.

About the Author:

Teresa Y. Neely is currently Director of Zimmerman Library at the University of New Mexico. She previously served as Head of Reference at the Albin O. Kuhn Library & Gallery at the University of Maryland in Baltimore County and as adjunct professor in the College of Information Studies at the University of Maryland in College Park. There she led efforts to develop and implement a system-wide information literacy program. She received her MLS and PhD (in LIS) from the School of Information Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh.

From Booklist:

Even prior to the ACRL Information -Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, there were concerns on what to teach and how to assess information competency. Librarians, researchers, and others seeking examples of teaching activities, teaching evaluation, and student outcomes assessment will find a wide selection of examples tied to these standards in this book. Neely and her cowriters discuss ways to integrate standards in what is taught about planning, gathering, evaluating, and using information. They also emphasize information literacy assessment as important to the college accreditation process. There are numerous suggestions for developing and writing assessment instruments. One error that jumped out is the statement in the foreword that other "empirically proven" influences on information literacy are discussed in chapter 8. It would more accurate to say (as was done in chapter 8) that there is evidence of other important variables beyond the ACRL standards, and these too should be assessed. Recommended for researchers and information literacy librarians. Linda Loos Scarth
