We hope to learn more about this effort and determine how other existing assessments can be overlaid (is that the right word?) with our own efforts...

Title: Feasible, Scalable, and Measurable: Information Literacy Assessment & the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)
Date: Monday, June 25, 2012, Time: 8-10:00 a.m., Location: ACC-203A
Description: While academic libraries struggle with assessing efforts to improve students' information skills, few assessment opportunities offer longitudinal and comparative data regarding information literacy. NSSE, a leading postsecondary assessment survey, has collaborated with librarians to create the Information Literacy Module, an addendum to the survey. The module is designed to facilitate efforts to assess undergraduates' information literacy and compare their results to other institutions. NSSE researchers and librarians will provide an overview of NSSE and the module, suggest methods to incorporate NSSE data into assessment efforts, and invite participant feedback to improve the information literacy module.
Participants will be introduced to the draft survey questions for the NSSE information literacy module
Participants will learn how to incorporate NSSE data into their assessment efforts
Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback regarding the module's content
