HEDS Research Practices Survey Now Open

(via Lizabeth Pinkerton, Wabash College in Crawfordsville, IN)

Registration for the spring administration of the Higher Education Data Sharing Consortium’s Research Practices Survey is open. The HEDS Research Practices Survey only takes about 15 minutes to complete and includes questions that map to each of the Association of College and Research Libraries’ five information literacy competency standards. When administered to incoming first-year students, the survey provides important comparative baseline information that faculty and librarians can use in developing pedagogies and materials to advance their students’ research and information literacy skills. When administered to both incoming and upper-level students, the HEDS Research Practices Survey can be used to assess the outcomes of liberal arts instruction in college-level research skills (longitudinally or by cross-section).
