Abstract: This report offers an interdisciplinary approach for conducting assessment on learning outcomes in undergraduate communication research skills where information literacy is embedded in the expected outcome. A Communication Studies department and the University Library piloted a two-year program to develop strategies for coordinated assessment that give feedback to both the Department and the Library. This collaborative model could be applied to any type of communication learning outcome that is related to information literacy.
