Topic: Critical Thinking & Information Literacy
Embedding analytic rubrics into coursework can be an effective method of assessing skill development. Utilizing a norming framework, we found that the Information Literacy VALUE rubric could be used to discriminate graduate level work. In this interactive session, participants will learn how to modify and calibrate rubrics, establish validity and reliability, and build interdepartmental partnerships.
This presentation will focus on the development of a critical thinking signature assignment at California State University, Fresno. An interdisciplinary faculty committee created and had students complete a signature assignment during the Fall 2014 semester and it will be implemented campus wide in Spring 2015. This signature assignment was piloted in mostly traditional face-to-face courses but was also assigned in one course that was using Pathbrite eportfolios. The presentation will discuss both the process of developing a signature assignment and the results of the pilot study.
