Overview of Library Instruction Assessment - 0 views

  • Focus has been on us ◦ Perceptions of teaching ◦ In general, little measure of what students are actually learning / can do
  • National Survey of Student Engagement  “First-year students were asked in NSSE about the frequency with which they „worked on a paper or project that required integrating ideas or information from various sources,‟ a component of information literacy. UNCW first-year students reported a frequency that was statistically significantly below that reported by our selected peers, significantly below that reported by national master‟s universities, and significantly below that reported by all NSSE 2007 institutional participants. This information led to the development of a rubric-based assessment plan for information literacy to be implemented with the comprehensive assessment of Basic Studies beginning Fall 2009.”
