How do we know what we teach is actually sticking? Librarians at UMKC developed an assessment process to determine effectiveness of library instruction sessions by seeing what students think when looking for sources after time in the classroom. Students were asked to find two sources, one scholarly and one popular. Questions on a discussion board in Canvas asked students to describe where they searched and identify the credibility and relevance of what they found. Using OpenRefine and Google Forms, the librarians extracted data and analyzed student responses to identify trends for updating lesson plans. The findings were not what was expected! In this session, participants will hear about what drove us to go against traditional rubrics and surveys and get a taste of coding a discussion board.
