SmarterMeasure: An assessment tool for measuring if your learning style is one that is compatible with online learning.

Online learning is different in from traditional face-to-face learning in many respects.  Some individuals feel more comfortable learning in an online environment than others.  Are you a good fit for distance learning?  Find out by completing the SmarterMeasure assessment.  It will take you about 35 minutes from start to finish but you may log out and complete it later if necessary.  After you login, you will receive an email from SmarterMeasure with a PIN number that will allow you to log back in later or view your results again.
SmarterMeasure is meant to be an interesting experience by which you may learn more about yourself, distance learning, and how to succeed!  Your SmarterMeasure score will not prevent you from registering for online classes.  Take your time to rate yourself honestly.  It is a tool that will help you assess your strengths and opportunities for growth related to distance learning in 6 areas. 
      1. Life Factors
      2. Individual Attributes   
 3. Learning Styleswhat is your predominant learning style?
      4. Technical Competency, Skills, and Knowledge
      5. Reading Rate and Recall
      6. Typing Speed and Accuracy
You will receive a full color report immediately following the completion of all areas of SmarterMeasure.  You may email this report, print it, or download and save for future reference.  It also provides some remedial tools related to each area.
