Results of an information literacy skills (ILS) assessment from two consecutive dental school cohorts (C1, C2). A majority of students from the first cohort (C1) missed at least one part of the technology-dependent ILS component of the assignment questions (1B = 61% incorrect, n = 51/84; 2B = 37% incorrect, n = 31/84; 3B = 43% incorrect, n = 36/84). Similarly, more than one-third of students from the subsequent cohort (C2) also missed one or more sections of ILS-related assignment questions (1B = 24% incorrect, n = 18/76; 2B = 36% incorrect, n = 27/76; 3B = 17% incorrect, n = 13/76).
