Title:Measuring and Demonstrating Information Literacy Outcomes in a Review Process
Author(s):Hinchliffe, Lisa Janicke; Wong, Melissa Autumn
Subject(s):information literacy
academic libraries
Abstract:"This chapter focuses on measuring and demonstrating information literacy outcomes in a review process. Doing so requires identifying outcomes, selecting methods to assess the outcomes, implementing a plan for ongoing collection and analysis of evidence, and analyzing the evidence to show student learning as well as a process of programmatic improvement. And, of course, the library must also deliver the programs and services that are designed to support student learning! The emphasis in this chapter will be outcomes for formal instruction programs, such as workshops, online tutorials, course-integrated instruction, and credit courses; however, the strategies can be adapted to more informal instruction situations as well. By measuring and demonstrating information literacy outcomes, you will be able to contribute to persuasive self-study documents as part of institutional review efforts as well as develop long-range plans to support future accreditation and program review needs."
