How do students use the sources we help them find during library instruction sessions? To answer this question we scored research papers written by students enrolled in a firstyear experience course to assess how well they were finding, incorporating, and citing appropriate sources. During this presentation we’ll share our assessment process, from developing and norming the rubric to using the data to inform changes to our one-shot lesson plan. We will also share preliminary assessment results following implementation of the new curriculum. Our results may inspire you to rethink the focus of your first-year instruction.
