Abstract (summary)
This article discusses the Information Literacy in Alberta Assessment Pilot (ILAAP), a pilot project launched by four Alberta post-secondary institutions.

It is also created to provide a more appropriate model for promoting and assessing information literacy skills among students. The article describes the emergence of the assessment tool and details the benefits and the challenges of the project.
