According to Professor Judy Moreillon, “The current age of accountability requires all educators to be responsible for collecting evidence that demonstrates improved student learning.” She maintains that TRAILS, provides a way for teachers/librarians to collect student “achievement data.” This tool can be used as a benchmark, which will identify “various strengths and weaknesses in students’ information-seeking skills” (Moreillon, 2014). Teacher Librarians and Classroom Teachers can then use the assessment results to co-design information literacy instruction, which will have a ongoing measurable, and very positive impact on student learning outcomes.

Learn how this assessment tool will:
* Positively guide your future instruction and collaboration with classroom teachers.
* Provide the evidence you need, to showcase improved student learning outcomes.
* Empower YOU to lead the way in your school district for improved teaching and student achievement outcomes with evidence-based practice.
