TRAILS: Tool for Real-time Assessment of Information Literacy Skills

TRAILS: Tool for Real-time Assessment of Information Literacy Skills | Bibliotecas Escolares. Disseminação e partilha | Scoop.it

TRAILS is a knowledge assessment with multiple-choice questions targeting a variety of information literacy skills based on 3rd, 6th, 9th, and 12th grade standards. This Web-based system was developed to provide an easily accessible and flexible tool for school librarians and teachers to identify strengths and weaknesses in the information-seeking skills of their students. There is no charge for using TRAILS.

Literacy Now: Resolving the Tension between Basic Literacy and Information Literacy

On average, Americans read at an 8th grade level..... All of these examples, and countless others, show that when the emphasis is on using technology to improve basic literacy, and not just information literacy levels, students develop both kinds of literacy. The most important lesson of this is that we can combine the two without sacrificing either.

"The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) provides a definition of 21st Century Literacies specific to this challenge. They write, “Because technology has increased the intensity and complexity of literate environments, the twenty-first century demands that a literate person possess a wide range of abilities and competencies, many literacies. These literacies—from reading online newspapers to participating in virtual classrooms—are multiple, dynamic, and malleable.” The NCTE website suggests that necessary contemporary skills include the ability to

- Develop proficiency with the tools of technology

- Build relationships with others to pose and solve problems collaboratively and cross-culturally

- Design and share information for global communities to meet a variety of purposes

- Manage, analyze and synthesize multiple streams of simultaneous information

- Create, critique, analyze, and evaluate multi-media texts

- Attend to the ethical responsibilities required by these complex environments"

 

Interesting reading, I warmly recommend!
