Competency: Information Literacy
Definition: The set of integrated abilities encompassing the discovery of information, understanding how it is produced, and its use in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning.
The attached rubric will be used to measure students’ information literacy skills in humanities and communications courses as part of Broward College’s general education assessment process. A faculty member may use any one class assignment for this assessment, so long as the assignment selected allows for an accurate measurement of at least one of the information literacy outcomes included in the rubric below.
Broward College faculty librarians developed this rubric through a rigorous authoring and norming process. Revisions were made in consultation with faculty members on the College Assessment Team for Student Success.
