This paper describes the South Dakota state universities' development of a dual-measure instrument to test Information Literacy (IL) following the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education and using classical and modern psychometric methods. This tool can be used as an exit assessment for undergraduates and as an entrance assessment for advanced learners to indicate deficiencies in IL that must be addressed early in graduate education.
