Presentation Description

In 2009 Radford University implemented a new CORE curriculum with a strong information literacy component that requires library sessions in two research-intensive classes. The McConnell Library instruction department successfully employed a novel approach to assess the effectiveness of these library instruction sessions. The department adopted an observational assessment of worksheets that involved a mix of personal reflection on a session, matrix analysis, and an analysis of student worksheets. This presentation will address how this assessment strategy effectively illustrated areas where student grasp of CORE objectives were weakest, effectively allowing librarians to alter their lesson plans and worksheets upon analysis of their observations.
