From Eyeballing to Evidence: Assessing for Learning in Hawaii Library Media Centers
Harada, Violet H.
School Library Media Activities Monthly, v24 n3 p21-25 Nov 2007
The development of "library evidence folders" for assessment purposes was featured in a previous "School Library Media Activities Monthly article, "Building Evidence Folders for Learning through Library Media Centers" (Harada, November 2006). The project developers challenged participants to change their mindsets from "eyeballing student performance" to designing and implementing measurable evidence of student learning. These developers were part of a collaborative yearlong project that brought three organizations together: Hawaii Association of School Librarians (HASL), the Hawaii Department of Education's School Library Services (SLS), and the University of Hawaii's Library and Information Science (LIS) Program. Since the publication of that article and the 2006 AASL Fall Forum that focused on assessment, various state library leaders have contacted the Hawaii project developers expressing their desire to conduct similar assessment training in their own regions. This article will focus on this growing and heartening interest in assessment as central to student learning. (Contains 2 tables.)
