The LEAP Learning Communities program at the University of Utah provides over 800 undergraduate students a two-semester, small-cohort learning community course with a peer advisor and embedded librarian. The LEAP/Library partnership provides flexible, real-time collaboration that enables students to achieve a high level of retained library skills, necessary for a major research institution. LEAP's assessment culture, Library partnership, and Peer Advisor advocacy for students, fosters multiple assessment practices for real-time course-corrections on course material coverage. Educational Benchmarking Incorporated and SKYfactor assessments conducted since 2010, demonstrate students in LEAP consistently report higher information literacy scores compared to students in similar first-year programs at peer institutions. Internal pre- and post- course surveys and student evaluations demonstrate library skills are foundational for LEAP students' success. The panel will model our assessment and learning goals that can be implemented into your library faculty course or institution, collect data and share models of library-student-faculty partnerships, and provide audience engagement on our best-practice of using Alignment Grids. The natural extension of this method is to other undergraduate programs. The panel will provide a model of improved student success through the application of assessment to learning outcomes, and examine how assessments from multiple stakeholders improves students' learning.
