SmarterMeasure Assessment

SmarterMeasure – Readiness for Education At a Distance Indicator is a web-based, diagnostic tool that gives students immediate feedback about their strengths and weaknesses as they relate to online learning. The SmarterMeasure assessment measures six areas of readiness:

  • Life Factors

  • Learning Styles
  • On-Screen Reading Speed and Comprehension
  • Typing Speed and Accuracy

The assessment takes about 25-30 minutes to complete, although anyone taking the assessment does have the ability to log out and resume at a later date if he or she is unable to complete it the first time through.
