TRAILS assessment

Last year TRAILS (Tool for Real-time Assessment of Information Literacy Skills) was administered to over 300,000 students. National benchmarks based on that data are now available for the performance of students at grade level who took the 3rd, 6th, 9th, and 12th grade assessments. Registered users can view the benchmarks after logging into their TRAILS account. A free TRAILS account can be created at http://www.trails-9.org/.

 TRAILS provides:

·         Free access  (www.trails-9.org)

·         Standards-based items for 3rd ,6th, 9th, and 12th grades

·         Downloadable results at both class and student levels

·         A system that allows for self-administration by the librarian

·         A tool designed to help determine student information literacy skills

·         A system that collects no student information

TRAILS is a service of Kent State University Libraries and has been funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the U.S. Dept. of Education, LSTA, and the Martha Holden Jennings foundation.

Transitioning to College:

Preparing your students for college? In addition to TRAILS-12, take a look at our sister site—Transitioning to College (T2C) at http://www.transitioning2college.org. T2C provides resources for both students and librarians about the college experience and the role of libraries. Included are video learning modules, sample syllabi, a glossary of college terms, and tips for educators. This is a brand-neutral site and another freely availableservice of Kent State University Libraries.

Cheers, Barbara
