Assess is the 6th and last stage of the Research Process
At this stage of the process we should ask:
• Did I fulfill my purpose?
• How well did I go with each step of the information process?
• How well did I go presenting the information?
• Where do I go from here?
• review the extent to which the end product meets the requirements of the task
• assess their own use of the information skills in completing the task
• assess the effectiveness of own processes in each step of the Research Process
• examine strengths and weaknesses of specific information skills
• identify increases in knowledge
• determine how well they worked in groups (social skills)
• assess the positive contribution of each group member
• set personal goals for the further development of information skills
• conduct a PMI to assess the process and the end product
• ask: What did I do well? In what areas can I improve? What would I do differently next time?
