Instruction Assessment

The librarians at Oxford College collaborate with faculty, administration, and Institutional Research to maintain a rigorous assessment plan. The Research Practices instruction team works to identify new ways to assess student learning by attending workshops, webinars, and staying abreast of current assessment literature.

What We Assess

  • Student learning of library and information skills
  • Faculty satisfaction with our teaching program and library services
  • Librarian teaching skills

How We Assess

  • Biennial implementation of the Research Practices Survey
  • Participation in the MISO Survey through collaboration with Oxford College IT
  • Development of a Framework-based list of student learning outcomes
  • In-class assessments of skills students have acquired
  • Annual faculty focus groups
  • Annual First-Year Council student focus group
  • Self-evaluation of teaching and presentation skills
  • Completing a curriculum mapping project to track research skills across the curriculum
