helps librarians assess student information literacy skills exhibited in "artifacts
of student learning" like research papers, presentations, worksheets, portfolios,
or reflective journals. Using the AAC&U VALUE rubrics and the Information Literacy
Competency Standards for Higher Education as starting points, RAILS assists librarians
who seek to create campus-specific rubrics, "norm" them for use with multiple raters,
and gather results data that inform instructional improvements.
