The SAILS test is a nationally-recognized assessment of information literacy skills. Use our library skills test to determine how well your students can navigate the complex world of information. Using the SAILS information literacy test will allow you to identify strengths and weaknesses of your students’ information literacy skills and will provide direction for your course in order to better develop the skills of your students.
There are three forms of the SAILS information literacy test. One gives individual test results, one is for groups (cohorts) of students, and one allows you to select the test questions. All three tests are based on the ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education.
