Rationale for the Plan

We have removed two goals because among the previous three PGs, only this goal, “To provide quality user education to students”, is directly related to student learning outcomes (student-centered) and can be assessed according to the Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILOs) and Middle States Standard III.

Data Collection and Evaluation

We will follow last spring’s practice, in collaboration with the General Education Assessment Committee (GEAC) schedule and administer Information Literacy assessment pre-tests and post-tests for direct measurement.

When: Spring semester 2020 Who: Di Su, Head of Information Literacy, and several other library faculty members who will be assigned to monitor quizzes
