Samenvatting

The purpose of this article is to expand on a previous study on the development of a scoring rubric for information literacy1. The present paper examines how students at the Department of Information Services and Information Management, The Hague University, use the scoring rubric for their school work and/or in their regular jobs and social life. The research presented here focuses on a group of adult students who follow a part time evening variant of the Bachelor curriculum. The methods employed in this study consisted of an online survey to select students who had used the scoring rubric at least once after the workshop in which it was introduced. Following on from this, a focus group with respondents who had answered positively to the invitation at the end of the survey was organised and chaired by a neutral moderator.
Samples that could be used in this research were very small. The findings may therefore not be generalized to all other groups of students. However, the results appear to be of relevance to the IL community. The students who participated in the focus group reported that they used it for self-assessment throughout the course, in subsequent courses, and to become more critical of their own writings and those of other people. The research also makes clear that adult students appreciate the feedback generated by completing the scoring rubric form but that this is not a substitute for the face-to-face feedback they receive from their teachers.
