Information Literacy Assessment

The Hammermill and Ridge Libraries seek to provide effective and adequate assessment for each information literacy instruction session taught. Each class is asked to fill out an assessment/evaluation form either in print or electronically in order to measure learning outcomes from each session and ensure accountability and quality.

Assessment is essential for the following reasons:
  • Monitor effectiveness for accountability
  • Better identify instructional practices
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of instructional practices
  • Measure student achievement: how much they know
  • Evaluate students' mastery of skills: What they can do.
