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.

All TATIL modules are available now! Explore this site 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

The most fundamental reason for assessing information literacy skills is to improve the quality of instruction itself. Determining what students know, and what they don’t, provides information about the efficacy of the instructional program and is a necessary first step to informing curriculum and instruction decisions. Assessment also provides data-driven evidence of instructional impact for administrators and external reviewers and can be used to justify an instruction program or feed into broader campus initiatives.
