ALAO 2012 is Friday, October 26 and the Project SAILS team is preparing for this event and the opportunity to showcase the importance of information literacy assessment to universities and colleges throughout Ohio.
Information literacy assessment can help to identify gaps in student learning and locate key areas for improvement. The Project SAILS individual and group online assessments are based on ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education and can deliver the data and insights you need to document curriculum successes and areas for improvement.
ALAO is a great opportunity to visit with Project SAILS co-founder, Carolyn Radcliff at our booth. Carolyn has over 20 years experience as an academic librarian and is currently a professor of University Libraries for Kent State University. Carolyn is a published author on information literacy assessment and has actively lent her expertise to ACRL and RUSA. She will be available to offer further insights on information literacy assessment and its importance in the higher education library setting.
ALAO visitors will also have the opportunity to discover how the Project SAILS individual and group information literacy tests are:
- Statistically reliable
- Easily administered online
- Respectful of your budget
- Timely and relevant
