Presentation Description

Despite being “digital natives,” many students still struggle when asked to solve problems and think critically about information obtained digitally. In this session, you will learn about the iSkills assessment, which assesses information literacy in the context of technology. The assessment, focused on student learning outcomes, measures the ability to think critically in a digital environment through a range of real-world, interactive, scenario- based tasks.
