SmarterMeasure: Life Factors

Many students strongly desire to continue their education. However, often other situations in life prevent them from being able to do so.

The Life Factors section of SmarterMeasure asks questions about other elements in your life that may impact your ability to continue your education. The section measures five items: Time, Place, Reason, Resources, and Skills.

You may be able to modify circumstances which impact some of these life skills. If so, you are encouraged to take appropriate action to help yourself succeed. But some of the circumstances in life may be beyond your control. If this is the case, being aware of these realities and planning accordingly may be beneficial for you.

The ELI staff offer several webinars throughout the semester to help you succeed in your ELI Courses. You might be interested in participating in the GOALS: Guiding Online Adult Learners to Success series. To find the live and recorded sessions, click here.

To obtain log-in information for the SmarterMeasure assessment, email from your VCCS email account. Once you complete the SmarterMeasure assessment, you can find more information in the ‘Assessment Summary’ section.
