What struck me as I surveyed the course materials this week was the outcome I got after taking the Threshold Achievement Test for Information Literacy (TATIL). When I was conducting my research, I had a lot of questions about the sources I found, such as; how did the writer get the data? How the writer’s data was accurately confirmed before it was produced? What causes the writer specialists on the topic? What made the writer have an interest in his case? (Hyland, 2019) I acknowledged that judging data correctly requires one to be keen on the information. All these results are correct because I am careful before I put out knowledge to ensure accuracy, and I can be a skeptic at times. Class, what were your thoughts after taking the Threshold Achievement Test for Information Literacy (TATIL)?
The insight I have is that analyzing is the act of examining part of data in sections and as a whole to know the intended purpose of the data and what the information represents (Borgatti, Everett & Johnson, 2018). The concept of accurately analyzing the data is necessary to a research paper. Class, which ideas do you find significant to completing a research paper? I faced some challenges this week with Threshold Achievement Test for Information Literacy exam. The sections included peer reviews and scholarly writings. It appeared like they were convincing me to always believe in academic papers. Every material used should be compared with other credible materials to certify it is valid. I found it also necessary to know the kind of structures, analysis methods, and writing skills the writers use in the research paper. Research papers help get some meaningful information; however, it is necessary to compare research papers to ensure the information found in the article.
