The Educational Testing Service has published a presentation in which it summarises some of the results from students taking their ICT Literacy test (which covers aspects of information literacy). Data is taken from the results of over 6,000 test-takers in 2006. They emphasise the extent to which students failed to achieve full scores: presumably partly to demonstrate the value and rigour of their (priced) test, but the presentation could also provide useful data for people who wish to argue that students are coming into university with insufficient information literacy.
