9:30-10:00 Knowing the Lay of the Land: First Year Course Programmatic Assessment Creates Benchmarking of Student Information Literacy Skills

Washington State University recently launched Roots of Contemporary Issues (RCI), a required first year course featuring a set of library research assignments and a culminating final paper. A group of RCI instructors, English Composition teachers, and WSU librarians conducted a series of assessment projects to gauge achievement of the information literacy student learning outcomes associated with the research project. This presentation will include insights about effective assessment methodologies, and reporting on the information literacy areas of most and least success for students. In terms of the Libraries' impact on student performance, the presenters will compare the IL achievement of students who sought library reference help and/or had a library instruction session with those who did not. The presenters will discuss adjustments made to the assignments in light of discovered data trends, and how the findings contribute to the larger university-wide assessment program.

10:00-10:30 Satisfaction Guaranteed: Elevate Learning Using the ARCS Model of Motivational Design

In the library instruction classroom, learning is elevated when students are motivated and they leave feeling satisfied.  There is a four-step process that can be applied during each session of instruction that leads to this feeling of satisfaction.  Janet Hauck has adopted the ARCS Model of Motivational Design for use in her library instruction, and she will showcase this model during her presentation so that other instruction librarians can experience it for themselves.  The acronym "ARCS" stands for Attention, Relevance, Confidence, and Satisfaction, and when these four elements are built into an instruction session, the result is a group of motivated learners. Janet has recently teamed with faculty in her university's Composition Program to apply and assess the use of the ARCS Model in her instruction sessions with their classes. She will outline her techniques, and also present an assessment tool.
