Rubric Assessment of Information Literacy Skills

The RAILS project was intended to help librarians assess student information literacy skills exhibited in "artifacts of student learning" like research papers, presentations, worksheets, portfolios, or reflective journals. Using the AAC&U VALUE rubrics and the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education as starting points, RAILS resources can aid librarians who seek to create campus-specific rubrics, "norm" them for use with multiple raters, and gather results data that inform instructional improvements.

RAILS was funded by IMLS (RE-04-10-0045-10) from 2010-2014. The resources archived here are provided of ongoing use.
