Is Online Learning Right for Me?

SmarterMeasure is an assessment that measures learner readiness for distance (online/hybrid) learning. It will help you to understand the skills and characteristics that are needed to be successful in online and hybrid learning environments. The completed assessment will help you determine if online learning is a good fit for you.

The assessment takes approximately 30 - 45 minutes. Take your time and answer each question to the best of your ability.  Upon completion of SmarterMeasure you will receive a report which will help you understand your strengths and areas for improvement. Resources will be provided to help you succeed. Remember, this assessment is strictly for your benefit. Take the time to rate yourself honestly.

We encourage all students considering registering in an online or hybrid course to complete the SmarterMeasure assessment prior to enrollment.
