At LaGuardia Community College, faculty are using VALUE rubrics to assess student learning. A modified VALUE rubric for information literacy was used to assess students’ research and information literacy competency. Work from students with 25 credits or less and from students with 45 credits or more was examined, and the scores compared. The observed increase demonstrated that “the college is effectively helping students to make gains in research and information literacy throughout the curriculum, cumulatively over time” (Clark & Eynon, 2011, page 8).
