Information Literacy Toolkit

Assessment of research skills

Assessing Information Literacy

With our recommended assignments, activities and approaches in this Toolkit, we have included relevant assessment suggestions, including sample rubrics and suggestions for formative assessment during classtime or over the course of a semester.

Information literacy skills include:

  • Determining the nature and extent of the information needed
  • Accessing the needed information effectively
  • Critical evaluation of authority, reliability, bias and more
  • Using information ethically and legally

Google Documents

The Toolkit uses Google Documents for most sample assignments. You can work with these assignments in a number of ways. If you have a Google account, clicking "file" -> "make a copy" once you have opened a Google Document will add a copy of the file to your Google Drive account. You can make any needed edits to this new file. 

If you do not have a Google Account, use the download link under each assignment to download a copy to your computer or click "file" -> "download as" once you have opened a Google Document. You can make any needed edits to the downloaded file.
