Assessing Research

  Assessing Research Skills

Throughout your program, you will build and refine your research skills. At the master’s level, it will not be enough to simply state your opinion in your writing. Faculty will expect that you support the claims and arguments you make with quality, scholarly sources.

As you reflected on in your Unit 1 discussion, you are already coming into your master’s or graduate certificate program with skills and strengths. As part of this assignment, you will assess your research and information literacy skills and identify both strengths and areas for growth. You will have an opportunity to review resources recommended specifically for you based upon your assessment results, and will then reflect on what you’ve learned from reviewing those resources.
