Rubrics are developed to assist faculty in rating qualities of learning outcomes.
When provided to students before and during learning, rubrics assist students to more successfully interpret and anticipate expected levels of performance.
Information Literacy evaluation criteria mapped to QEP Information Literacy Learing Outcomes (based on ACRL (Association of College & Research Libraries standards) establishes:
• a common framework and language for assessment
• a guide where complex behaviors and learning can be examined efficiently
• criteria and standards upon which several instructors can assess achievement across courses or curricula
• a criterion-referenced model, rather than norm-referenced, where student work is mapped to criteria, not other students’ achievements
