Test to Gauge Potential for Success

The SmarterMeasure Learning Readiness Indicator is a web-based tool which assesses an undergraduate learner's likelihood for succeeding in an online and/or technology rich learning program. SmarterMeasure indicates the degree to which an individual student possesses attributes, skills and knowledge that contribute to success including:

 - Self-motivation
 - Time-management skills
  - Self-discipline
 - On-screen Reading Rate and Recall
 - Persistence
 - Availability of time
 - Ability to use a laptop, printer, software, and the Internet
 - Typing speed and accuracy

SmarterMeasure is a tool that allows self-assessment of strengths and weaknesses. The report also generates a list of resources to help students improve their study skills; however, SmarterMeasure is not intended to be used as a screening tool for admission or enrollment.
