Abstract: Formative assessment was introduced in Rehabilitation Therapy students’ information literacy programs in Fall Term 2006 in the course OT/PT 892: Evidence-Based Practice. It was subsequently employed in the Winter Term 2008 and again in the Spring Term 2008. Formative assessment during student/librarian face-to-face consultations was one of a variety of teaching techniques used in the program. Other techniques included: a required reading; an interactive hands-on searching session; and a summative assessment of the final revised search strategy assignment (these techniques varied somewhat over the 3 classes). With the 2008 entrance class, this course content moved to OT/PT 898: Critical Enquiry, largely in Module 3: Reviewing the Literature. One of the Critical Enquiry’s learning objectives is: “recognize and reflect on the complexity of gathering evidence to inform decision-making.”
