Originally developed in the UCLA College Library and the UCLA Social Science Computing Center. Online
information literacy tutorial with pretests, lessons, interactive
exercises, videos, and quizzes in four modules that correspond to the
elements of a basic definition of "information literacy": Starting
Points (identify), Find It! (locate), Judge for Yourself (evaluate), and
Road Etiquette (use information effectively and responsibly). When UCLA
students logged in, their Pretest and Quiz scores were recorded.
Instructors could check class rosters for Pretest and Quiz scores by
clicking on "Administration" in the bottom green part of any tutorial page and logging in with their UCLA logon IDs.
