Course Grade as a Measure of the Effectiveness of One-Shot Information Literacy Instruction
Coulter, Priscilla; Clarke, Susan; Scamman, Carol
Public Services Quarterly, v3 n1-2 p147-163 2007
In an attempt to gauge the effectiveness of their information literacy program, librarians at Stephen F. Austin State University began comparing average course grades in course sections that receive IL instruction to grades in sections that do not. The results varied, revealing no clear benefit to information literacy instruction. We discuss possible explanations for inconsistent results and suggest improvements to this methodology that may make it more effective. (Contains 10 figures.)
