Notes

Abstract: Assessment is an essential part of a quality library instruction program. Librarians learn in library school, at conferences, in articles, and on the job that continuous assessment is necessary to ensure instruction is relevant and effective. So why aren't librarians implementing more assessment programs? Teachers of K-12 and college instructors have used assessment for innumerable years to determine if students are learning concepts and meeting objectives. The thought of not using assessment in the classroom is unthinkable for the majority of teachers. As librarians are doing more and more teaching and are considered teaching faculty in many school districts and at many institutions of higher education, it is more important than ever that we implement assessments in library classrooms.
