Authentic Assessment of Student Learning in an Online Class: Implications for Embedded Practice
Alverson, Jessica; Schwartz, Jennifer; Shultz, Sue
College & Research Libraries, v80 n1 p32-43 Jan 2019
Growth in online course delivery has created challenges and opportunities for academic librarians. Working with an online undergraduate course for adult students, three academic librarians revised their model for embedded practice, focusing on high touch and quality contact with the students. Using a citation analysis of final papers collected over several quarters, we compared sufficiency of sources, quality of sources, selection of sources, and diversity of perspectives in bibliographies created before and after our revised curriculum. Findings show that our added attention to this cohort resulted in improvements across all of these metrics.
