anding of the need to discriminate among traditional &
electronic sources.


Recommended Actions:

Primary Performance Target

Secondary Performance Target
:
Target met, though the assignment should be repeated to gather a

larger data base for how
our students evaluate sources and whether they can consistently discriminate among their favored electronic sources and the m
ore
traditional paths to gather information.
