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 August 2018. Explore this site to learn more about the test and how to administer Module 1, Evaluating Process & Authority, and Module 2, Strategic Searching.

Rigorous assessment of student information literacy learning is about more than demonstrating library value at a single moment in time. The real value is a better understanding of student learning in order to improve that learning. It is the process of improvement, not a final scorecard, that demonstrates real value.
