Hey see-for-ehl,

It's still a year or two out, but re-accreditation awaits us at the end of the harrowing tunnel of library-work. One of my coworkers asked me to explore tools for assessment, linking me in example to WASAIL // Augustana Information Literacy from the University of Alberta ( I can't say that I'm particularly qualified to judge assessment tools and I was hoping you might have insight about WASSAIL or anything else.

My only real concern is that I don't want to adopt or force a tool that will only be a temporary stop-gap or will somehow be silo'd (siloed?) from the rest of our applications and content so I'd hope the tool would be versatile and easy to adapt so that we could truly integrate it. I can judge this part.

I don't know jack about assessment / assessment tools!
