Information Literacy: How Illiterate Are You?

Now a days is hard to catch up with all technological developments and get to the level where fluency is a plus in this digital world. Karin Dalziel, starts a first draft of what all would like to call types of information literacy.

Literacy, the ability to read and write.
Information Literacy, the ability to find, evaluate and use information
Media Literacy, the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, and create messages in a variety of forms.
Digital Literacy, the ability to use digital technology, communication tools or networks to locate, evaluate, use and create information.

Frank Baker has suggested to add the word 'comprehend' as part of the Primary Activity in the chart built up to characterize this typology.

And Jenny, The Shifted Librarian thinks the chart should be completed with the category 'evaluating' in the first Information Literacy box (talking about the very same chart Dalziel has been working on).

So, after disclosing this interesting work I would like to ask you dear readers. What's you level of information literacy in scale 1 to 5?
