Taking into account the establishment of the European Higher Education Area, an approach into the self-assessment of information competences by students of Psychology is proposed. Our diagnostic tool is the IL-HUMASS survey, focused on four key dimensions: information search, evaluation, processing and communication-diffusion. The questionnaire also has a three-faceted viewpoint: motivation, self-efficacy and learning habits from the students. We present the results enhancing which are the competences best and worst evaluated by students, in diverse courses; which ones they consider they manage better, which ones they consider as more important; and which seem more difficult for them, regarding understanding and development. In our conclusions we will offer a practical proposal to intervene and help the students in order to improve the weaknesses diagnoses in their information competence.
