CREDO Information Literacy

CREDO Information Literacy Courseware is a part of the QEP. This program is meant to develop and measure critical thinking skills. There are 25 lessons. Each lesson has chapters, a lesson quiz, and a lesson assessment.

The chapters discuss the materials and may include videos and/or "checkpoints". Checkpoints are reflective questions to help the student digest the information that was just presented.

The lesson quiz consists of multiple choice questions that are computer graded.

Lesson assessments are activities or short answer questions. These can be assessed in three ways. They can be reflected, the students are given a rubric to see how they performed. They can be anonymous peer review or they can be instructor graded. As an instructor, you decide how you want this assessed. You can also choose to opt out of these and they will be removed from the course so your students aren't confused.

You can custom which lessons you want your students to complete. Only the lessons you choose will be visible to the student.

The courseware provides a pre- and post-test so you can see student growth throughout their use of the program. These tests will only include information that is relevant to the lessons you have selected for the course.

Once you have completed the form, sent it to Clarissa Diaz, csdiaz@swtjc.edu.
