It’s here! The next generation of Information Literacy Assessment
After three years of development, two years of field testing, and countless hours of creative innovation and hard work, Carrick Enterprises is proud to announce the availability of the Threshold Achievement Test for Information Literacy!
The Threshold Achievement Test for Information Literacy (TATIL) is a unique and useful tool to add to your assessment program. It will facilitate conversations on your campus and throughout the profession about what information literacy means to students today and into the future.
Inspired by the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, TATIL provides librarians and other educators information to better understand the information literacy capabilities of their students. These data-driven insights inform instructors of weak areas, guide course instruction, affirm growth following instruction, and prepare students to be successful in learning and life.
Two TATIL modules are available now! Two more will come online in 2018. Explore this site to learn more about the test, administering the finished modules, and participating in field testing for the remaining two modules.
IL Assessment is the key that determines whether/how well we have taught, whether/how well the students have learned, and whether/where we need to make improvements in our teaching. Without it everything we know about IL success is anecdotal. IL Assessment answers the demand for accountability and helps us to improve our IL programs.
