Findings Students (70 out of 100) were able to locate the circulation desk to check out reserve books.

Changes to make for Spring 2012: Revise distracter C. B and D are good distracters.

Although the results are good, this is the same question on our Circulation Quiz.  Recommend we revise the question stem and change the distracters just in case the same student is taking circulation quiz at the same time.

 

Question 2: What form of identification do you need to check out reserve materials?

 

 

a.       County library card.

b.      Cuyamaca library card.

Findings: Students (93 out of 100) can identify the borrowing policy of using their Cuyamaca College ID to borrow reserve items.
Changes to make for Spring 2012: Revise distracter s A, B and D.  Using the phrase “:all of the above” is not considered a good choice.

Findings : Students (90 out of 100) can identify the loan policy period for reserve items labeled “in-library-use-only”.
Changes to make for Spring 2012:  Revise distracter C. It seems to be common sense that the phrase “in-library-use-only” means you cannot take it home.

 

Questions 5: If you have unpaid fines for a reserve textbook on your library account, you:

 

 

a.       Cannot register for classes.

b.      Cannot add or drop classes.

e. 2 no answer

 

N= 100

 

Findings: Students (68 out of 100) could identify the consequences of unpaid fines policy.

Changes to make for Spring 2012 Even though students (68) chose the correct answer, the “all of the above” is not a good distractor.  We do not know if students checked D because they read all the choices or they checked D just to finish the quiz.
