Project Abstract:

This project will adapt the Information Literacy Assessment & Advocacy Project (ILAAP) diagnostic tool for use throughout the SUNY system. This online assessment will provide student admissions and advising officers with a clearer picture of a student’s information literacy competencies (ILC) as they relate to the Association for College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, the SUNY-GER, and campus requirements. The tool will provide the student with an ILC report that includes a series of “next steps for remediation” when they’ve tested deficient in specific competencies. The project campuses, University at Buffalo, Erie Community College, and The College at Brockport, will work with creators of ILAAP to customize the questionnaire based on institutional needs. The revised questionnaire will be administered during the fall 2017 semester, revised, re-administered in the spring 2018, and finalized for rollout across SUNY during the summer 2018.
