The next generation of Information Literacy Assessment

The Threshold Achievement Test for Information Literacy (TATIL) helps faculty and academic librarians better understand the level of information literacy achievement of their students. The Test is inspired by the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education which was adopted in February 2015.

We are currently developing this new instrument and are looking for schools to help with our field test this fall. If your school would be interested, please review our Field Test Information page. We will be providing more information to those who register as it becomes available.

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.

The goal of the Threshold Achievement Test for Information Literacy (TATIL) is to provide faculty and academic librarians with 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.
