First Year Information Literacy in the Liberal Arts Assessment (FYILLAA). Devleoped by Carleton College, Gould Library FYILLAA Overview: Over the past two years the Gould library [Carleton College] has taken a lead role in a MITC / NITLE grant to create a web-based assessment tool to measure the information literacy of incoming students, before they've had any college library instruction. The grant included librarians, faculty, institutional research staff, and academic technologists from St. Olaf, Macalester, Carleton, Grinnell, Lake Forest, the University of Chicago, Ohio Wesleyan, and DePauw University. The survey provides participating schools with data about their students, along with comparison data across from the other participating institutions. The assessment tool focused on five dimensions of student information literacy: Experience, or what have students done; Attitude, or what do students value; Epistemology, or what do students believe; Knowledge, or what do students know; and Critical Capacities, or how do students evaluate..

Course Management Systems (CMS)

Course management systems (CMS) are designed as a repository for all information related to courses. Each course generally creates a space within the CMS so their class knows where to go for assignments, links to online readings, class announcements, syllabus, etc. (description by Susan Wortman, University of Michigan)
