LEAP Information Literacy Assessment

LEAP and Library Partnership for Online and Hybrid Development

The purpose of this research study is to incorporate new technology including online and hybrid teaching into the LEAP/library partnership, evaluate the information literacy skills of students in LEAP courses, and use the results to revise our LEAP curriculum and improve the LEAP/library partnership. We are doing this study because LEAP has strongly contributed to the retention and graduation rates of undergraduates at the University of Utah, and the libraries have played a strong partnership role, and we would like to formally assess LEAP students’ critical thinking and information literacy skills and use that assessment to strengthen the LEAP/library partnership.

The assessment, provided by Threshold Achievement Test for Information Literacy (TATIL), (see: ) is designed to reflect a strict policy of protecting your privacy.  No personal information or data will be gathered by either the Marriott Library or the TATIL site.

If you have any questions, complaints or if you feel you have been harmed by this research please contact Dale Larsen, J. Willard Marriott Library, University of Utah, 801-581-8323 or

It should take about 45 minutes to complete the assessment. Participation in this study is voluntary. You can choose not to take part. You can choose not to finish the assessment or omit any question you prefer not to answer without penalty or loss of benefits.
