Representing Reference - Measuring Success: How one institution is determining the impact of bibliographic instruction and what they are doing with the results
As LYRASIS continues to explore assessment of information literacy training in libraries, this month we turn to the efforts of the staff at the William C. Jason Library at Delaware State University. They've developed a tool called Knowledge Check Survey - a survey administered (through LibGuides) to first-year university seminar students. In this presentation, staff of the William C. Jason Library at Delaware State University will present and demonstrate their Knowledge Check Survey and the results it has yielded so far. They'll share how the Knowledge Check Survey was developed and discuss its implementation as an instrument to assess information literacy (IL) sessions taught to First-Year University Seminar students. They'll also preview a new information literacy game, also developed by the librarians at Delaware State. They'll explain how the results are used to help them understand how to improve IL classes for future students.
