How to Complete the Tutorial

Welcome, Whitman IMPRESS students! This online self-paced tutorial will introduce you to key information literacy skills and library resources.

To complete this tutorial:

1. Complete the pre-assessment

2. Complete all seven modules:

  • Module 1: Identifying Bias and Misinformation
  • Module 2: Types of Sources
  • Module 3: Evaluating Information
  • Module 4: Research as Process
  • Module 5: Search Basics, Part 1
  • Module 6: Search Basics, Part 2
  • Module 7: Syracuse Libraries Resources

3. Complete the post-assessment

Each module will take approximately 30 to 60 minutes to complete. We recommend pacing yourself by completing up to two modules per week. You will earn 25 IMPRESS points for completing the pre-assessment prior to starting the modules. You will earn 50 IMPRESS points for each module you successfully complete. After you have completed the pre-assessment and all seven modules, you will be eligible to take the post-assessment. When you complete the post-assessment, you will receive an additional 100 IMPRESS points. The deadline for completing this tutorial (pre-assessment, each of the seven modules, and the post-assessment) is November 16, 2021.

Although you are earning points on behalf of your house, the work you do to complete this tutorial should be done on your own, independently. Syracuse University, the Whitman School of Management, and Syracuse University Libraries expects all students to adhere to the Academic Integrity Policy in all their studies and academic work.
