- Road to Research
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 log in, their Pretest and Quiz scores are recorded.
Instructors can 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.
NOTE: The UCLA Library is no longer maintaining this tutorial (as of Summer 2011). However, the UCLA Social Sciences Computing Center is working on method for
crowdsourcing the content. In addition, many sections are still relevant and do not require updating--e.g., Starting Points: Topics, Judge for Yourself, and Road Etiquette.
