Title: Closing the One-Shot Loop
Description: Three library staff started assessing student research papers for Information Literacy skills in one section of a course in the fall of 2014. Expanded to 13 sections or more, our assessment project has a life of its own. This data provides results for assessment reporting internally and for Middle States; more importantly it provides data to improve information literacy instruction. Are we shouting into a canyon, only getting an echo back? Or is there real learning and improvement? What skills do our students need us to focus on? After this year's pilot assessing a required research course, we may have some answers and even more questions.
From this webinar, attendees will learn:
- about SJU's Information Literacy instructional modules and online assessment
- the basics of programmatic assessment
- an overview of Blackboard Outcomes, an assessment tool
- tips on how to assess without an assessment tool
- ideas for further programmatic assessment
