Abstract: "The National Survey of Student Engagement, one of the leading undergraduate assessment instruments, has collaborated with librarians to create an information literacy module. The module is designed to facilitate institution's efforts to assess undergraduates' engagement in activities demonstrating information literacy. An assessment instrument measuring information literacy engagement at the campus-level has long eluded librarians. This paper describes the conceptual framework of the module, examine its validity, and correlates its constructs to other information literacy measures."
