Information Competency Modules

Welcome to the Information Competency Modules for your AH3 class. These modules will give you an opportunity to find and evaluate information about the material covered in your textbook. They will give you an idea of the wealth of information available through the Internet. And they will introduce you to some of the services provided by the Gavilan Library.
Each of the eight modules will cover research skills that you might need for different courses over your college career and for the rest of your life. There is a quiz attached to each one, worth 5 points, for a total of 40 points. These points will be added into your AH3 main course. The topics you'll be searching are from the first few chapters of your textbook.

The quizzes will all open on Wednesday, June 21st. And they will all close 4 weeks later on Tuesday July 18th at 5 minutes before midnight. I would advise you to get in there and finish them all, rather than wait until 11:30 at night on that Tuesday evening.

For each quiz you will have two chances to get a perfect score. If you don't do well the first time, review the information in the module for that quiz before you take it again. In fact, you can open a second window with the lesson displayed while you take the quiz on the first window. Sometimes you might get different questions.

If you have any problems or questions, please contact me, Jo Anne Howell, at jhowell@gavilan.edu. I am one of the reference librarians at the Gavilan reference desk and I'll be reading your assignments, answering your questions, and posting your points.
Good luck and have fun!
