What Are They Learning? Pre-and Post-Assessment Surveys for LIBR 1100, Introduction to Library Research
Hufford, Jon R.
College & Research Libraries, v71 n2 p139-158 Mar 2010
Articles reporting the experiences of librarians in assessing what students are learning in information literacy classes are as of yet not as well represented in the professional literature as they should be. This is especially the case for library skills courses that are for-credit. Librarians who have experience assessing student learning should share what they have learned with colleagues who, in turn, need to know what methods are working and how the assessment process can be used to improve teaching and learning. This article reports on the experience gained by librarians at Texas Tech University Libraries while developing and implementing pre-and post-assessment surveys that were administered in eleven sections of a library research course taught in the fall of 2008.
