Developing an Information Literacy Assessment Rubric: A Case Study of Collaboration, Process, and Outcomes
Gola, Christina H.; Ke, Irene; Creelman, Kerry M.; Vaillancourt, Shawn P.
Communications in Information Literacy, v8 n1 p131-144 2014
A team of four librarians at the University of Houston (UH) Libraries partnered with the UH Office of Institutional Effectiveness and its Director of Assessment and Accreditation Services for General Education to conduct a campus-wide, exploratory assessment of undergraduate information literacy skills. The project evaluated a selection of graduating, senior-level student papers using a rubric developed as part of the collaboration. This paper describes and discusses the collaborative rubric development and rating process, the practical implications for other librarians seeking to conduct a similar assessment, and the impact the project is having on the library instruction program.
