    Describe your experiences using resources, including concerns encountered when conducting academic research through the Ashford University Library.

    Ashford 3: – Week 2 – Assignment

    SAILS Exam – Information Literacy

    Knowing how to thoroughly research a topic is extremely important while achieving your education. You may be asked to support your information with peer-reviewed scholarly resources, but how can you find this type of resource? The Ashford University Library allows you to search through different avenues to find the requested types of resources. You can narrow your search by the author, year published, title, subject, and also by indicating what type of resource you are looking for. You even have access to a librarian if you need some guidance in finding more resources on your topic.

    This week, you will take the Standardized Assessment of Information Literacy Skills (SAILS) Exam. This exam is not graded, and your results are anonymous. The exam will exit from your screen immediately after completion, and you will not receive feedback or results. This is a nationally-normalized, standardized exam for students in universities all over the United States. The results of this assessment will guide Ashford University in developing the best possible library resources and research methodologies training. Results will be published (in aggregate) on Ashford’s assessment website. Your participation is voluntary, so thank you for your participation. Click on the link to access the SAILS Exam.

    After completing the SAILS Exam, in a two- to three-paragraph response:

    • Describe your experiences using resources, including      concerns encountered when conducting academic research through the Ashford      University Library. Areas of concern may include developing a research      strategy, using the search function within a database, or evaluating      sources.
    • Explain how using the Ashford University Library has      improved your experience in conducting research. 

    The response must be formatted according to APA style. Each paragraph should be at least five sentences. For information regarding APA, including samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center.

    Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
