It’s a New Generation of
Information Literacy Assessment!



We are excited to announce that this summer, the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) will be taking over the operation of TATIL. With this transition you can be assured that TATIL will continue to be a valuable assessment tool for years to come. We are working diligently with ACRL right now to ensure that this transition is seamless for our customers. We will be providing additional information about how the transition will affect your administration of TATIL in the coming months. You can read the ACRL announcement here.

Thank you for your continuing support of information literacy assessment and our efforts to make this assessment easy to administer.


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 powerful 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 evidence 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.

Explore this space to learn more about the test and how to administer Module 1 – Evaluating Process & Authority,  Module 2 – Strategic Searching, Module 3 –  Research & Scholarship, and Module 4 – The Value of Information
