Dr. Caitlin Johnson, Advisor
This study focuses on the impact that digital literacy curriculum has on online source evaluation skills. The focus is on whether providing modern digital literacy lessons will increase the ability to find bearings online. Research participants were asked to complete asynchronous lessons teaching them modern source evaluation skills. Results of the study used a qualitative approach comparing responses from a pre-test and post-test. The pre-test and post-test are parallel assessments with the same questions. The only change from the pre-test to post-test was the topic of the sources evaluated. The study was conducted using teachers employed at a large school district in Minnesota. The data and results will follow.
