Students will recognize the need for information and will effectively and ethically gather, evaluate, interpret, and attribute relevant information from appropriate sources to synthesize knowledge and support conclusions.
The university's general education curriculum develops students' information literacy skills by requiring completion of selected courses with an information literacy overlay, some of which students may complete in the course of fulfilling requirements for their major. The university gathers data for assessing students' skills in written communication from selected IL courses each year. (In addition, the university also reviews data from majors that assess their students' information literacy skills.)
The IL rubric was prepared by a subcommittee of the Outcomes Assessment Committee. For questions concerning the rubric or its use, please contact Elsa Winch by email or at extension 2652.
