  • Directed by Megan Oakleaf (Syracuse University), funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)

  • 3 years, 10 institutions

  • Investigates how rubrics can be used by librarians & faculty to assess IL skills

  • Practical assessment tools & results + broader research questions


Why did we want to participate

Why did we want to participate? Skills (RAILS) Project at

Kick-start our assessment activities

Learn more about developing student learning outcomes & using rubrics to measure outcomes


What did we do

  • Developed Skills (RAILS) Project at a local rubric focused on using information legally & ethically

What did we do?

Collected 100 samples of student work

Assembled a team of 11 faculty & librarians to assess student work

Participated in a day-long process of norming and scoring of student work


How did this help us

How did this help Skills (RAILS) Project at us?

Demystified the process: assessment is do-able!

Started a sustainable assessment process

Clarified our assessment goals

Increased our understanding of rubrics

Provided a basis for conversations with faculty about assignment design & expectations for student work

Rubric norming process
Rubric Norming Process Skills (RAILS) Project at

  • Project leader models “think aloud” scoring of an example.

  • Ask raters to independently score a set of examples.

  • Bring raters together to review their scores to identify patterns of consistent and inconsistent scores.

  • Discuss and then reconcile inconsistent scores.

  • Repeat steps 2-4.

    Note: Ordinarily, two to three of these sessions calibrate raters’ responses.

Libraries-wide student learning goals and outcomes will:

  • Measure Libraries’ impact on fostering information literacy and research skills in undergraduate and graduate students across disciplines.

  • Demonstrate to a variety of educational stakeholders the Libraries' impact on student learning and the value of the Libraries Teaching & Learning program.
