RTI Assessment Findings
The RTI assessment findings have shown that the current RTI Research Fellowship program is highly effective and has succeeded in increasing the levels of research knowledge, confidence, and productivity of participants. The RTI has a proven track record of successfully addressing key MLA core values of promoting the creation and dissemination of health information research and building research capacity among health sciences librarians everywhere to contribute to health and library improvements.
Throughout the year, the institute conducts assessments to determine whether the program is reaching its objectives. Based on these assessment findings, the RTI program is meeting its performance goals and increasing the productivity, impact, and quality of health information research produced and used by health sciences librarians. Results also reveal other benefits that have been derived from the RTI fellowship training.
RTI assessment findings are freely accessible in order to share conclusions, make methods transparent, allow the verification of data, and ensure the good use of association, donor, and public funds.
