“The NILOA Transparency Framework is intended to help institutions evaluate the extent to which they are making evidence of student accomplishment readily accessible and potentially useful and meaningful to various audiences.” 1

IUPUI’s Program Review and Assessment Committee (PRAC) has currently adopted this framework for the work in evaluation and assessment: PRAC has supported and funded the work of the University Library Instructional Services Group, to evaluate the instruction program and information literacy awareness across the campus in 2012-2013.
