This document contains information literacy standards developed for the State of Colorado. The purpose of the standards is to provide all students with a process for learning that is transferrable among subjects and from the academic environment to real life. Its goal is to have all students using information and ideas effectively. The five standards are: (1) the student constructs meaning from environment; (2) the student creates a quality project; (3) the student learns independently; (4) the student participates effectively as a group member; and (5) the student uses information and information technologies responsibly and ethically. The rationale behind the need for information literacy standards and the standards themselves is presented. Finally, the components of each standard are outlined. A list of Information Literacy Standards Writing Project Team members is also included. (JLB)
