Information Literacy Program: Subject Specific Instruction    Assessment Plan
(Draft 11/20/2001 )

Priority Outcomes  How Assessed 
(measures and criteria)
(data and reports)
Each Student:

Identifies the purpose and audience of potential resources in a variety of formats (e.g., multimedia, database, website, data set, audio/visual, book)

Identifies keywords, synonyms and related terms for the information needed

Constructs a search strategy using appropriate commands for the information retrieval system selected (e.g.,
Boolean operators, truncation, and proximity for search engines; internal organizers such as indexes for books)

Uses various search systems to retrieve information in a variety of formats 

(Please note: These are the most common priority outcomes. Priority outcomes for subject specific sessions vary depending on the needs of the particular class.)

Subject specific session survey is given to at least 10% of all sessions offered.

Library faculty ask non-library faculty for comments and suggestions after each session.

Library faculty regularly meet with departments to assess their needs and satisfaction with these sessions.


Faculty use data and comments from the students completing the  Subject specific session survey  and comments from other faculty and departments to improve their sessions.

Summary data on numbers of sessions is included in the instruction team annual report.
