Title:Pilot-testing an Online Credibility Evaluation Learning Tool
Author(s):Leeder, Chris
Subject(s):information literacy
credibility evaluation
online learning
college students
Abstract:In light of students' reliance on the Internet, their general lack of IL skills and unsophisticated criteria for evaluating online information, and the lack of consistent institutional IL training, new pedagogical models are needed to teach effective online IL skills. This research addresses the need for today's students to learn to effectively evaluate online information and describes pilot tests of a prototype online credibility evaluation learning tool. Results of online and in-person pilot tests showed that students had positive responses to the tool and indicated that they found it useful and effective. Concrete suggestions for improving the tool were generated. This research investigates a new pedagogical model to teach IL and credibility evaluation skills situated in the online information environment.
