Title of Presentation

Before-and-After Quizzes in One-Shot Library Instruction

Presentation Type

Lightning Talk

Description

This presentation describes the use of a semi-anonymous, low-stakes online quiz in one-shot library instruction sessions. The presenter will show how the use of this quiz can be of use to the teaching librarian, specifically in knowledge retention and formative assessment. This particular quizzing method allows students to observe their own learning process by looking at their own "scores" right after they take the quiz and to see any prior knowledge on the subject. It also allows the instructor to redirect their instruction based on answer patterns.

Learning Outcomes

How quizzes can aid knowledge retention.

How to use quizzes to illustrate prior knowledge, to identify topics in the library instruction session to be revisited, and to allow students to observe their own learning process.
