Truth Be Told: How College Students Evaluate and Use Information in the Digital Age (PDF)

Abstract: …Respondents reported using a repertoire of research techniques—mostly for writing papers—for completing one research assignment to the next, though few respondents reported using Web 2.0 applications for collaborating on assignments…. Recommendations are included for how campus-wide stakeholders—faculty, librarians, and higher education administrators—can work together to help inform pedagogies for a new century.

They also have a video about the project.

Got the note about the report from Gary Price.
