The library has been assessing students' information literacy skills and librarians teaching skills since 2007. At this time, our assessment plans at the Touro Libraries include the following:
1. Information Literacy Skills via ACRL Project Outcome Project. Click here to access the survey.
2. Faculty evaluation of our teaching library staff
Faculty can assess their students' information literacy skills in a variety of formats, such as minute papers, portfolios, self-assessments, and rubrics. A rubric can be created for assessing one skill at a time, such as an annotated bibliography assignment, or for assessing information literacy skills in general.
3. Faculty may assign ProQuest Research Companion which is an online course designed to help students understand and successfully complete college-level research and writing. PQRC includes guidance on choosing a topic, finding information from appropriate materials, selecting evidence, attributing sources, and writing a research-based essay. Each unit contains a series of short (1-3 minute) videos.
