Assessment in Action: Critical Thinking & Information Literacy: Home

This guide is a companion to Assessment in Action (AiA) poster presentation at the American Library Association Annual Conference 2015.

The Poster

This project examined critical thinking of students in a one credit-hour information literacy (IL) course. The team used TRAILS pre/post-test to assess student IL skills. While these results were inconclusive, we were able to align the pretest data with student work in the final project. The rubric measured students' ability to apply higher level thinking to IL skills in order to create a viable thesis statement and support it with authoritative and relevant resources.
