Process of Core Competency Assessment:

Course (400- level)

SPAN 369 Latin and Global Documentaries and Film


A three page paper that analyzes an assigned film. Papers can be written in APA, Chicago Style or MLA. Direct quotes from film are required.

Type of Student Artifact

Film analysis

Rubric or other instrument

GE Rubric for Information Literacy.

Data (measurement of the competency)

Two external readers from outside of the department read sixteen (n = 16) papers. Students averaged 2.125 in Document Conventions, 3.093 in Appropriateness of Sources, 2.687 in Evaluating Sources, and 2.843 in Integrating Sources.

Given the unusual nature of the assignment, which is not an academic paper needing research, the artifact may not have been the best choice for assessment for information literacy.  The committee recommends to the program the submission of an actual research paper for the next information literacy assessment.
