Assessment of student learning is more necessary than ever, especially in an era of budget cuts and staff reductions. Academic librarians are no strangers to assessment, but figuring out how to implement authentic assessment can be tricky. We all want our instruction to help students, but how do we know if they are actually learning? Performance based assessment requires students to demonstrate, often in creative ways, that they have actually learned what you set out to teach them. This presentation will provide techniques for designing assessment that requires students to perform real-world tasks tied to information literacy learning outcomes. The presenter will share successful, practical assessment methods that will have students showing off their skills in no time.
