The Challenges of Assessing Media Literacy Education
Schilder, Evelien; Lockee, Barbara; Saxon, D. Patrick
Journal of Media Literacy Education, v8 n1 p32-48 2016
In the media literacy literature, the challenges associated with assessment have, to a great extent, been ignored. The purpose of this mixed methods study was therefore to explore the views of media literacy scholars and professionals on assessment challenges through qualitative interviews (n = 10) with the intent of using this information to develop a quantitative survey to validate and extend the qualitative findings with a larger sample of media literacy professionals and scholars from around the world (n = 133). The findings offer an overview of the assessment challenges encountered by these participants.
