Information Literacy at Norwich University: Assessment

Resources about information literacy, assessment, and methods for faculty to incorporate these concepts into their courses.

Rubrics and Collaboration

"RAILS is an IMLS-funded research project designed to help academic librarians and disciplinary faculty assess IL outcomes. RAILS serves as a clearinghouse for librarians and faculty to share local adaptations of IL rubrics, rubric assessment results, improvements to instructional strategies and services made on the basis of those results, and examples of increased student learning resulting from instructional improvements."

"Reviews the development of educational assessment from the 1970’s to the present, including
discussions of basic working definitions and models of assessment in IL. It reflects on
what librarians have learned from assessment and about assessment, and how this information is being
used to improve current and future assessment offerings." (Abstract)
