Authentic assessment remains a challenge for many information literacy programs. Despite progress developing and integrating learning outcomes into curricula, many programs fail to demonstrate changes in knowledge or behavior as a result of their instruction.

Participants should bring examples of existing tools to use as a basis for developing authentic assessment measures
