Ashford 6: – Week 5 – SAILS Exam Discussion


Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.



SAILS   Exam Discussion



Description: Prepare Icon


As you prepare to write your   second discussion response for this week, be sure to complete the following: 

  • Review our readings and        discussions about library research methods.
  • Review your own methods for        researching and finding library resources.
  • Take the SAILS exam. Your results are anonymous.        This is a nationally-normalized, standardized exam to measure        information literacy skills for students in universities all over the        United States, and the results will guide the university in developing        the best possible library resources and research methodologies        training.  Information literacy can loosely be defined as the        ability to find, evaluate, and use sources of information. Thus, the        exam measures your research abilities.
  • Review the grading rubric for this discussion.

Before drafting your initial post,   take time to reflect on your exam experience. Which questions were most   challenging? How will you improve in these areas? How will you apply your new   skills and knowledge to activities in the future?

Write (due Thursday, Day 3)

In 200 to 300 words, share your   SAILS Exam experience by discussing each of the following: 

  • Explain how you prepared for        this exam on information literacy (in other words, research skills).
  • Based on your experience        taking the exam, identify an area you feel you did well in (for example,        organizing information) and an area you feel you need to work on        (evaluating a website for authority). Be sure to explain your choices.
  • Discuss how you plan to apply        your new skills and knowledge to future activities. How will you address        any areas of weakness you discovered when taking the exam?

Responses to classmates are not   required. They are, however, welcome. If you do respond to classmates, here   are some potential topics for response:  

  • A detailed explanation of how        you related (or did not relate) to your classmates’ experience.
  • Questions and suggestions        about classmates’ discussion of strengths and weaknesses.

Make every effort to read all   posts and responses in this discussion. You are strongly encouraged to follow   up with classmates who have responded to your post. As always, you may   respond to more than two classmates if you choose.
