Meeting in the Middle: Assessment Ideals and Campus Realities
Keywords:information literacy, instruction, assessment plans, authentic assessment
This article describes the development of an information literacy assessment plan for course-integrated instruction sessions at the Ball State University Libraries. The impact of conflicting needs of stakeholders, the realities of staff time, and the university’s campus culture related to assessment came together to impact the outcome of the assessment plan. The process of developing and enacting a plan allowed Information Services Librarians to begin to understand the relationship of their instruction assessment work to the larger library and campus assessment process.
