Is Online Learning for Me?

Certain skills and attributes contribute to success in online courses. The Smarter Measures quiz (formerly known as the READI test) uses a sequence of activities to measure these skills. It tells a user whether he or she is a good candidate to take an online course. The Smarter Measures quiz produces an immediate score and gives personalized feedback on:

  • Individual attributes and skills, such as self-motivation, self-discipline, persistence, and time-management
  • Reading speed and comprehension
  • Technical competency
  • Typing speed and accuracy
  • Preferred learning styles

The quiz takes about 20-25 minutes. Chesapeake College receives summaries of results.
